They're nice and cozy during the winter time freeze :)

That normally lasts about two weeks here, though last winter it dragged on for months :eek:
(Enters snarky sarcastic comment here)...

Really, Magenta, you know your "winter" is rather pathetic by Canadian standards. :)

Why not make a thread in which people post math problems for others to solve?

You're an old pro at writing threads, Zero! It would be a piece of cake for you. ;)

And Lynx, sorry I didn't answer... As far as a cloak goes... I'd need to find a pattern first and take a look at it. Unfortunately, I'm not all that skilled--just basic things, really, and I'd get nervous about making something for someone from such a distance (meaning I couldn't do any fittings, though a loose-fitting cloak might be feasible.)

If you sent me some pics, I'd have to see if there are some patterns in existence that would be close to what you're looking for. I know some people who are so talented they don't even need patterns, and can pretty much improvise anything, but unfortunately, I'm not one of them.
I don't know any math questions to ask, unless they're pharmacy questions regarding reconstitution, admixtures, infusion rates, etc.... :rolleyes:

Have you ever noticed when you buy pajamas, that one half has
the print pattern upside up and the other half is upside down?
Yes!

I always like noticing little things like this in ready-made clothing.

If the patterns are going different directions or if the prints/stripes/plaids don't match, this an obvious sign that the manufacturer was trying to cut costs, because it takes more time, skill, and materials to produce something that is of higher quality--and it shows.

I don't know any math questions either, obviously! :D

If we do start such a thread, I would have to admit to cheating--and pulling problems off Google. :cool:

Why lol? What part of canada is she from? :rolleyes:
Dino is correct :) We usually don't even go below zero Celsius (freezing point), and sometimes don't get much snow if any at all, but last winter we had snow snow and more snow over months, and it was seven below Celsius (nineteen degrees Fahrenheit) for quite an extended period. Very unusual for west coast/lower mainland winter weather, which is normally quite moderate.

Nah, I was kinda kidding. Well, half serious, half kidding, just in case you could... You mentioned you were sewing and if I had really been a lynx my ears would have gone BOING!

Read through every post and no one asked the obvious question?

Velvet shorts? Very SASSY!

Alas.

The project I'm working on shall just be a humble pair of shorts for the gym, but long enough to cover the assets without displaying and/or choking the buns (unlike any of the choices in the stores now days.)

I was just using velvet as an example of a napped fabric. :)

P.S. Love your attention to details, Chick! :)

You're just saying that because you were wrong :p
I've been wrong exactly once in my life; when I thought I was wrong and I wasn't. Beware going up against an alcoholic - we can be right about anything at anytime. Logic is very flexible to us.

Here is a story problem. Have fun y'all!

Kathy's Kandies features a mixture of chocolate creams and chocolate-covered caramels that sells for $9 per pound. If creams sell for $6.75 per pound and caramels sell for $10.50 per pound, how much of each type of candy should be in a 1-pound mix?

Story problems are of the debbil. Period. The answer is football, because purple is the limit as x approaches zero of bathtub divided by the tensor of green over the field of nurples prime. Dun!

Molly, would you mind if I quote this and start a new thread? This is a cool idea and I don't want it to get lost or overlooked here. :)

I actually know how to solve this, but I will be a gent and let someone else try first :p

(hint: use an "alligator"!) :rolleyes: - and I don't mean the animal...

You can always tell an alcoholic, but you can't tell them much :D

Or so I have been told :)

Are you going to meetings?

I remember you mentioning it a while ago
:eek:

I attend regularly, both AA and NA...

And since the topic is sewing, I have been meaning to ask you also:

What do you think of the assemblage point? :D
