I have been tempted to do another sewing 101 class...
but to be honest...
no one from the previous class has actually made anything yet (that I know of)

but if you have at least already been working with a sewing machine and have done a few things...
then it becomes more of a trial and error thing...

some things that I do "from scratch" (no pattern or tutorials available) require a lot of failure first...

I never charge for sewing...and do things when I can...and if I can...
but...
another "barter" for R2 services would be cool...

I will trade you one Jedi costume for some help with Artoo...
as you already know...I have the dome motor and drive...but have not had an opportunity to look into how to install it, power it, and remote it..
the install of the motor and drive is probably not as big of a deal..but selecting a correct power source and the really (for me) mind numbing task of the remote control set up would be a challenge....
there is no point in getting a sophisticated remote system if all it is really going to do is power the dome movement..
I have always kinda wanted to make the one holo-projector move and light up too....but...not as important as making the dome move...
at least it will give my Artoo some kind of movement..


As you note...
right now I think both of us are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too busy for our own good..
but maybe we should talk about this as a winter project...

Hehehe, it just so happens I am right now in the process of doing that for another builders droid. I was going to use his droid as a sample of this new controller, as I would like to see how well it works before buying one for dze or d2 as S5's controller for his dome is no longer available. Which is a shame, as It works perfectly even with his gear drive dome.

yeah, sounds like we could work something out... Though i think it would be more of a spring thing, than a winter, as I still have my other project to start.. Though I am hoping for a smooth run, it never seems to happen with any of my projects. My console for my car was 3-4 years in the making, and I still want to do some changes to it, or maybe scrap it and start over. hehehehe

...I have seen your dress Rae, you definitely have some mad skills there. There were some crazy stitches in that one dress... I believe it was a padme dress. All I know it was awesome the way the threads criss-crossed...


This one?


Or this one?



I embroidered the Naboo symbol on this one, but it's not as impressive.

Just celebrated my daughters wedding saturday. all i can say is wow, I hope the other two elope.

some of the midwest garrison came out to the reception to serve an arrest warrant, which was the highlight of the day!

and the normal boring pics

S5 stood guard and operated as surveillance of the Wedding/Reception to make sure he didn't escape


And now I think the groom knows what marriage is really like.



and my favorite



well almost



and
