With respect to Sammy and JB i would like to show my latest "one off, home made, quad kite"
It depicts Sitting Bull, in his teepee, as he sees "The White Buffalo", on his last journey to the great hunting grounds in the sky.


Ohhhh That is SO Cool, Derek!!! :ani_punk: I really like this series that you're doing!

Really striking applique work Derek. You'll have to send that one over the next time so we can all see it and appreciate it.

He says humbly, having passed the rest of us mere mortals by with his building skills.

Papa Smurf told me once that all kites are to be judged from 100 feet. If they look okay from 100 feet than they are good kites. I'd suggest that yours would put the 100 foot rule to shame. Good Great work Derek.

Most people look at a kite and think it's a simple matter ... after all, it's just a flat piece of cloth tied off in the corners. Should be able to whip one out in hour or so. Maybe two hours if it's got a few colors. Would you mind sharing how much effort you've expanded researching and building one of your kites. And, if that's a borish question, just ignore me ... I'll eventually get the point.

Cheers,
Tom

Well Tom, thank you for your comments.
These two appliques are my first ones ive done as appliques, and not just panels sewn together.
When i get a bit better i will no doubt do the work a bit faster :) .

But if i tell you it has taken at least ten pages of me asking questions, and getting answers from the great folk on kitebuilder.com, i think you can get the idea.
When i started, i knew nothing about applique, and had to learn Everything. I really must say a big thank you to the guys and gals on kitebuilder, without whos help, i could not have done it.

Ho, and by the way Tom, here is one of my mistakes :blushing: , but dont tell anybody :lol: .
Posted Image

This was my first attempt at doing the face.
It looked ok so i sewed it on the sail.
But when i stood back, it just did not look like Sitting Bull. He was too thin.
So i had to applique another face, bigger than this one. sew it on the sail, and cut this one from the sail :blushing: :blushing: .
But it all turned out good in the end, so thats what matters hu!.

Derek.

Thanks for the feedback.

I'd also like to thank our friends on kitebuilder.com. Kitesquid has spent hours on the phone with me and sent a multitude of e-mails helping me with kite building. Don't think I'd of had the courage to start without his help. And, that's just with the basic kite building, not any applique work. Plus, he keeps helping even when I only follow half of his instructions ... the other half I seem to ignore and call them "experiments".

Again, great job!

Tom
