Lagoon Surf 2011, a set on Flickr.
Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Had a busy day taking photos and mucking around with the computer. The SWAP sewing is completed. Still need to take a group photo of garments and some detailed shot of the new techniques.
Summer in Oz , a set on Flickr.
Finished the grey sand washed silk dress yesterday and will post photos of the collar detail. also completed the grape coloured dress with the piping around the neck and sleeves. Wore that dress to breakfast. Have some photos of the locals surfing the release of water from the lagoon to the beach.
The lake becomes too full and is dug out by a digger. The water is released and a huge channel is eroded in the sand. The local children (also lots of adults) gather to surf the fast moving water which creates 'rapids' The lifesavers ride surfskies collecting the chldren that get swept
out to far... The energy is amazing... I have lots of photos on my flickr page. (see above)

Piping sewn around the neck and front opening. Will treat the sleeves the same.
Black stretch cotton slim pants 'jean' style pockets and back yoke.
Unmastered technique is the fly front.
Photo of the completed vest and black pants.
In the sky just before the sinking.
Completed a white and navy print linen top for the SWAP. The button hole loops were the new technique. We had finished breakfast and my husband took some shots for the SWAP at the Haven. Someone had dragged this massive chain down to the water ..... was it too big/heavy for the intended purpose?
Anyway it was left like a sculpture.
Lined jacket , linen top and navy linen pants.
This is typical Easter weather...rain. Shot of Tim
