Kites Indoors

No, this post is not about flying kites indoors.  I have no kites that are light enough to fly indoors and I have enough trouble walking forward most times much less walking backward and trying to control the flight of a kite.  No, this is about my new kite project, indoors.

I have begun work on the companion for Pepe.  I got the pattern transferred to the white ripstop and layered the three colors together.  Working into the wee hours of the morning, I have hot tacked the layers together and they are now ready for sewing.  The hardest part of all of this was getting the dimensions the same as the Pepe kite.  They are to be a pair so they must be the same.  The measurements are not exact but, as several of my kiting friends have told me, who can tell when they’re 75 to 100 feet in the air.  So I have given up on my perfectionism and come awful close.

Today is a scrapbook day for me so I’m planning on sewing tomorrow afternoon.  And on Saturday and on Sunday.  I don’t think I will get it done and sparred before the upcoming kite building workshop but I hope to have the skin completed to show the other kite builders.

The weather outlook for the next few days is bleak.  Rain today and high winds, really high, for the weekend.  Maybe by June the weather will stabilize to something we can enjoy.  That’s about as optimistic as I can get right now.

Fair Winds All.
