Yes, indeedy! Had to do a bit of math today to figure out measurements on a piece of fabric. No, I did not remember the formulas for 30-60-90 degree triangles from my 9th grade geometry! Thank goodness for Google! I figured it out - it's a weird measurement, but at least I know how to cut the fabric.
One of today's projects was to give a nip and tuck to my design wall. In the course of the move, the gridded flannel had loosened. So I put it upside down in the floor and restapled around the edges. Of course, half way through I ran out of staples! I know I have some somewhere, but I couldn't find them. Just because we're unpacked, it doesn't mean we're organized! I ran to the grocery store this afternoon to get more - so that project will continue tomorrow.
And the zigzag block of the day. These are BOTH very ooo-gly fabrics! Gold sunflowers and purple and black checkerboards!
And here's the group photo. Looking pretty good.
MAKING DO Report:
So far, so good. I haven't bought any fabric - haven't even been tempted. My rotary cutter blade is getting dull and I have no more. May have to spring for a pack next week.
