Christmas t-shirts for girls and our brand new SURPRISE niece! She showed up unexpectedly on 12/29/12.  http://www.polkadotchair.com/2009/10/be-ribboned-skirt-t-shirt-tutorial.html/

Set back until next year, 2014. But I have plenty of time to work out all of the math this way. A St. Patrick’s Day skirt for me. I have a note to myself to begin working o this in February.
