With next year’s Diploma in mind, I am starting to look at one challenge a week. This week it was “ photomerge” this is 3 pics,merged or stitched together. Same settings, my tripod is still down south , so I used my own ( personal design) camera bean bag, resting on a post. Night sky from our front patio.I still need to find how to frame and save in another format.
I can now breathe a HUGE sigh of relief, the dreaded project is finished. Hugh thought a ply sided cover on boxed steel was a good idea for the trailer, and a better idea was to have a “tent like canopy extension” for the back.This will save putting up a tent!! The first lot of sewing was a disaster, the roof had no fall,( the man did say he told me at the start the roof would need to slope down) ( I think I had a hearing problem that day!!) the sides were the same length, so if it rained, water would pool in the roof.. solution, unpick all the sewing, cut out a new roof, slope the side walls, at the top, so the ground part was level. This was a nightmare of EPIC proportions, can you hear the words…, Divorce, I will leave home, I hate this job, I will never try and do this again.. and so on. The waterproof fabric was so thick pins would not go through, if they did I had to use pliers to pull them out again,I used double sided sticky tape to hold the huge pieces together. It is over 2 metres long, 1.5 metres wide. And my new (temporary,))sewing table is a macrocarpa slab bolted onto a “Workmate Table”.( all sewing tables etc packed away for the better real estate pics!!)
There is also a side canopy, no walls, it was so much easier to fit, and Dave …( his work benches, huge cutting scissors, and rolls of fabric , not to mention sewing machines set into a level table, are a sewers dream come true)…. from
Tarps and Covers Ltd, 50 Taonui St. Palmerston North, came to my rescue as he did the last difficult sewing, and inserted some more grommets.
Many thanks Dave, you literally saved me from???
