Just a fancy Latin name for clock! A project I made for a design team I am on. It's mostly paper and chipboard with a few doodads. I am pretty happy happy with the stairs as I had to do the math for scale and build them by hand. I really hate math.  Cheesy

Lovely.  Colors are great, and I love the dangly tassel thingies.


I like math, it makes crafting easier.  

For instance, four of my wedding china dinner plates broke in shipping.  If each plate is 12" in diameter, how large a table can I mosaic using the plate rims for the edge?

The circumference of each plate is pi (3.14, but I'll use 3 for convenience) x the diameter.  That's 3' for each plate, times 4 plates equals 12 feet of rim.  Divide by pi (or 3), and I can edge a 4 foot diameter table.  (Ooh, a shotrtcut--add up the diameters of all the plates, even random sizes, and that will give you the diameter of the table you can edge.)

Yeah, my whole family are geeks.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Oh my word, this is positively delightful! The perfection of the stairs gives me warm fuzzies for whatever maths you had to conquer to get them looking so great. Awesome!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

It is actually very surprising that you hate Math but managed to produce such amazing stairs! Such a grand masterpiece that would definitely be a huge conversation starter regardless of who it is with.
