When we arrived i was happy to
find that Dave had given us a great head start by sewing together
the wing panels. I was even more thrilled to find that no one
had found the great red,white and blue wings that had my name
written all over them.
So i set to work sewing. Note the
intense look of concentration. This is tough stuff!!
A few hours later ... voila! A
gorgeous (and patriotic) kite. It was really great to take a class
with Dave. He has made thousands of these and the experience really
shows. I learned more good tricks in one saturday than i could
have figured out on my own in years.
like a dream ! ! !
