I was challenged this week to make a Digger, only problem was it had to be four balloons.
................shock ..horror, as that is not my strong point.
Those that know me, I do like to add an extra balloon or two to the design here and there, he he.
Anyway I gave it a go and here we have   ;D ;D ;D

My four balloon Digger.

I made this design a while back at one on the London jams. I have always liked it and so
made the design again today. The skirt part of the dress is an upside down flower.

Using a double 350 for the top of the dress she does look like she might be pregnant?

I have tried to re-create a picture that I took some possibly 8/10/12 years back.
I have always thought it looked a little artistic, perhaps its just me.
The original is the 260 with Maroon/Red background, it was made with a 260.
The new picture is with 350's and I added a little colour.
As always there is a link above to a Swan tutorial.

I was rather chuffed when I came up with this crown design, not sure why, possibly the nice geometric design within.
Or it might have been just nice to make a variation on the general crown. Again I have posted the tutorial link for
the design above, in the instructions its made without chrome balloons as back in July 2017 when I made the
crown chrome balloons were not available. I made the original using double stuffed 160's to get the desired
look I was after, there are a couple of variations on the link. So that's the story of the crown which I have a
soft spot for. I made it this morning again using 260 chrome balloons, surprisingly it was a little easier
than using double stuffed 160's 😉😁

I have always loved this flower, and have just remade it again for the memories.
All those years ago when we first made the design I was not sure why it was a favourite but in more
recent times it has become so as when I was attending a Juggling convention in Perth a very dear
friend passed away and this was the very first thing I made after receiving the news.
So when I make this now I always have a tear in my eye and remember Pearse with so many happy memories 💕
.................  and yes there is a link to the Flower tutorial above.

The Flower is very under used, in fact I think I might be the only person I know who makes it 😉😁
A little different from making the usual 6 petal flower.

These were the three we made for filming, one to show before we filmed so people saw what
we were making and I could keep referring back to it and then I will let you into a little secret.....

I filmed the tutorial twice as the first time I was wearing a short sleeved T-Shirt which has a nice mottle
look to it but on camera it looked like it needed a good ironing so I filmed it all again. I'm sure people
don't realise what goes into the filming etc. I made the design with variations nine times so that
I was happy with the look and the build went together easily and held together once made.
