BRRRRRRRRRR!

Postby Mike » Sun, Dec 21 2008, 09:06 PM

Anyone gone flying lately?
It's been around 0º all day, with the wind gusting at 36mph right now. That makes a wind chill of -27º.

I bet we hear from Jim or Hector: oh, it's around 60 or 70º with gentle breezes coming off the shore...just enough to rustle the palm trees...

I tried to get Jeepster to go, but he just laughed at me. -3 and blowing like crazy. I thought the roof was going to collapse with all the ice cracking on the roof last night.

Yup - Maggie with two stars on either end.
With as much as she likes to fly my RWB 8' I thought it would be a good christmas gift, and wouldnt pull her off her feet.
Even got her to help out a bit.

here is the build pics

Tried some new techniques with rolled seams, bridal tabs, and edge binding. Ill post a write up when i get a chance.
enjoy

I'm assuming that Maggie is your little girl (pictured)... What a cutie-patutie!
Great kite... interesting photos... Do you tailor? I have some old prom dresses I'd like redone!

Mux11 -

That is very impressive. I really like the lettering on it. How many hours do you have invested in the kite?

Thanks DB - Prob 8-12 hr total.. had to spread it out with everything else going on. Always makes it hard when it starts going together because the excitement builds more.
Well ripped it open yesterday and was amazed even after helping with the constructing.

sorry for the hijack - will have to work on posting a writeup
