    I love seeing that it’s August 2 where you are! In spite of the beauty of the blue leather, I think my favorite is the bottom.

      (((Dee))) I wanted the Dark Side of the Moon to be a spiral basket, tried a 5 pointed star of thick linen thread radiating from the centre to hold the shape from the outside but that ruined the line of the spiral, took it all out then tried reinforcing the spiral by overstitching the inside of the spiral but that distorted the curve so took it all apart & started again. The leather cord held the memory of the spiral and it came together quite fast, then stitched the outer edge to the papier maché mold, am busily sanding the big mold in preparation for stretching the blue leather & will start a new papier maché mold for the base. I also love how the black tissue lining on the inside looks like leather!
