Sailng on Windwanderer.

The missing week.

Ok so I know I'm in trouble and have not wrote on my blog for awhile.
I have been flat out and time just gets away.
I am just rolling all the days I have missed into one post, as the days seem to merge into one here anyway.

So we managed to get the cushion covers back on, well the Captain did, my hands were hurting so bad from all the work yesterday that I could not do it, I think I did one and that was about it.
Do they look good?
Well I would say ok, not what I wanted they are a bit patchy and not as dark as I wanted but they are still better then when I started.

I have decided to start on the curtains, we asked Bob if we could use the cottage here as they have a great big long table, and would be so much easier to cut and measure all the fabric.

So the work began, after a lot of research on the Internet, thanks to google I now have an idea in my head of how they should turn out...hahaha
I have made a Valance of the same material and made it into a box pleat, it actually turned out ok, which really surprised me...lol
We stuck this up with Velcro which has not worked so good, so I tried to sew the Velcro on and bent three needles so now it is clued on, I just hope it works.
Where all the pleats meet I am making covered buttons, and attach them, why? ...I have no idea it's crazy as I have to make 64 of them and so far have only made 10 with help from a friend, man we will be sailing into Sydney Harbour by the time I'm attaching the last button.

Then you come to the curtains themselves I have to make 18 of them, and this is only in the saloon area, I know they are not very big curtains, but they all have to have a backing sewn on them and they are all different lengths.

Man can see these being finished sailing into Sydney as well...lol
And don't get me talking about the ties I'm making.

So with all that going on and Bob the owner of the  area wanting us to come out for dinner and breakfast, and all the rest of the stuff that is happened around here it had been very hectic.
 
Well tomorrow is another day.
