Pretty sure I've posted this here before: 2 of my 3 children are redheads.  We took a 10 day trip to Hawai'i in 1997, and I wanted a gold medal because nobody got a sunburn!  DH complained constantly about the 'Elmer's Glue' consistency of the sunscreen, but he put it on anyway.  The girls had some parental help on top ups, and we were sticky as all get out what with the endless sand and goopy sunscreen, but - nobody got a sunburn!

Had a convo with someone on the Etsy site about 2" fabric squares I am selling. Wouldn't they finish up at 1" square after sewing, if you did a 1/4" seam on each side. No, I explained, 2 -  1/4" seams on the height leaves it 1.5" high. Two 1/4" seams on the width leaves it 1.5" wide. Thus it is 1.5" by 1.5".

Their reply, Oh, we calculated differently.

NO, YOU calculated WRONG.
