Big Build Friday, Atat plus star wars
« on: June 23, 2016, 03:01:03 PM »
We have another big build Friday coming up tomorrow, so big that I'm just about to start now and will be building today,
Friday and Saturday. So it's definitely a big build, hope fully we come out the other side smiling still  :)

I've only been twisting for 3 hours and I'm a little knackered,
might be the long day yesterday running the basic care & share day.

Done 13 hours of twisting today with David, we had a couple of meal and coffee breaks, and many laughs along the way.
Will post a few more pictures in the morning.

Anyone have an idea to what we are making?

Going onto Friday morning, normally I twist in the hall and David in the front room.
What I was building was so big we had to change around.

I made the knee look from 260's but changed this later to 160 as it looked out of place.

A few more pictures, I will post some more later but still building the next design.

David is a pretty fast weaver, the black design so far took less than an hour.

AND....................................... RELAX,
the van arrived 9am this morning to pick up the balloons and they are on there way to the party.

That was a busy three days, so at a rough guess I reckon this was 46 hours of work
including set up at the venue and travel.

If something is not quite right you do not get time to start again, you have to blend it in and work with it.
