Not my usual sewing...

Can you tell just how slick/slinky this material is?  I am not sure that slinky is the right word.  It just slides all over creation when you try to work with it.  I wish I had taken a picture of a whole panel.  My part of the job was two sew 11 sets of two panels together down the long side...which was 8 ft long.  The two panels made a huge finger print so there was matching the lines to be done.  

Sarah went and bought a serger to finish the edges or we would still be sewing.  That fabric frays so easily and so much I am not sure how long it would have taken to try to do a rolled hem.  But she put her foot on the pedal and got them done, then I turned up and hemmed them.

It was a project for the Drumline--Lorelei's instrument is the cymbals. 


We had shirtsleeve weather earlier this week.  Today was cold with spitting snow part of the time.  The wind felt like it was direct from an iceberg.   I am beginning to wonder if spring will ever fully arrive.
