Cutting . . . Check!

I just finished up cutting all my strips this morning. I probably could have finished yesterday, but I took a little slice off my index finger . . . that slowed me down - a lot! Watch those fingers people! I just got caught up I guess, thinking I had it all together and wham, [...]

Geometry Anyone?

As usual I had drawn up my own plans for a tree skirt. Then I had to sit down and figure out how make it! Realizing how rusty my geometry skills are, I turned to google (love google!). If I'm working on something small, trial and error works. But this time, I didn't have enough [...]
