Finding My Name in the Mandala

Here is how to find my name.  And the funny story about how engineers aren't always the smartest people just because they have calculators.

I told Frank that I wanted to create a circle with 8 slices like pie wedges.  I asked him what the degrees would be on that angle.  I thought I would divide 360 by 8 but not sure that it would give me what I wanted.  I have 3 college degrees, none of which are in math.  And what math I did have was strictly to do statistics with for the research component of the final degrees.

His eyes lit up, and he dug out a calculator and set to calculating.

Time passes, time passes, time passes.

As I was free motion stitching the colors down, Frank bounces into my quilting room and announces that the angle is 22.8 degrees. 

Now I have all kinds of ideas of what to do next!  I just can't stop looking at it! 


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
