Donated by Nancy Lockwood
Nancy is working on a kite project she is calling Mardi Gras Parade for our auction. We will be posting pictures when available. Based on other kites from this artist, I'm sure it will be a beautiful, excellent flying kite.
Here is an update about the Mardi Gras Parade. It is a train of 27 kites, each having five foot link lines between each kite. Nancy is disappointed that she could not do a decoration on every kite. There wasn't enough time. She wrote that the MKS has quite a few good sewers who might just decide to add their own finishing touches to the plain kites in the train. She is including a couple of the original drawings she made to do the decorated kites, in case someone would like a pattern. There is also a bag of confetti with the hope that these "bits" will inspire creativity along with time to act on it. It should arrive next week. Pictures will be posted as soon as possible. For an idea of the kite size, the box the kites are shipped in is 26" x 26" x 10" deep.
