Week 9 Word / Photo Challenge

Hello everyone I hope that you have all had an excellent week.
Mine has been quite hectic in a good way....so no complaints here.
I even managed to get in a 9k walk this morning, so I'm feeling good.
Week 9 of the photo / word challenge.
The word for this week was

"SIZE"

Now that is getting tricky...the whole thought of size doesn't matter and mines bigger than yours all came to mind, or quality versus quantity etc...
But, I decided to go with a little fun fact...
well the fact works in my house hold anyway...so I'm not sure if this is actually proven scientifically.
Did you know that if you measured the inside of your forearm....
It would also be the same measurement as your foot.
This is Darcee's forearm and foot, so kind of him to model for me.
His arm measures 25cm and yes his foot came in at the same size.
For a 15 year old he certainly has a big hoof. (12 1/2 mens shoe)
As for the sewing...well I have been doing some secret sewing
and I managed to get all of my North Pole blocks joined together.
Now what can I make from this.....my lovely friend Sue brought me this beautiful piece of fabric back from Samoa...It is very soft to touch...I'll have to get my thinking cap on.

very interesting secret sewing and your north pole looks fantastic!!
interested to see what you did with that luscious fabric....
but for now I am off to measure my forearm and foot..

That was a challenge I couldn't resist LOL. BUT its a fallacy when you measure me. Inside left arm is at most 9.5"; left foot is 8.25" from top of big toe to heel, and that was being generous! Tee hee hee.
