Embarrassment of Riches

Am I allowed to tell you that I won again? This time I won hand-dyed threads from Sharon B of In A Minute Ago. She had a contest to guess the length of a set of samplers she had sewn together. I came within 2". Just in case you think I have some magical abilities to intuit length, I used the fact that the average chair is 18" wide. There were four chairs at the table. I multiplied 72 by 5.5. I came within two inches. If I were standing there looking at it, I would never have come close--I cannot judge distance at all. But seeing it in a picture made it a logic problem. That I can do.

I can't believe the winning streak continues! I can't wait to use the threads. This is going to be so cool!
