In fact we didn't go for the picnic yesterday, but went to the Library instead. The whole problem being
"I know that you believe you understand what you think I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”..Robert McClosky -kindly pinched from my good friend frou-
As you know my maths is really non existent, I live by the rule of guesstimation and it usually works for me. But as I wanted to make a template for my Oriental Quilt. I had the small size, the medium size, but wanted to work out a larger one, because I want to make a bedquilt. Swallowing my pride I asked The Scot if he could work it out and draw a template for me. I really was stuck at this stage. Well this almost developed into WW3. He thinks he understands quilting but doesn't realise there are variances to rooles, and most importantly HE thinks he knows everything. But to finish the tale, I have just sat and guesstimated and trial and error on paper, and have actually found the size. Made a very quick mock up in fabic and it seems fine. I have left it on the ironing board , hoping The Scot will see it, but knowing him he won't. ah well c'est la vie
Now for the Good, like keeping the icing until the last.........this is what I received in the mail today.
