Eye of the Owl

Dale climbed a ladder to take a picture of the Owl Hot Air Balloon that is being built for/by Brie.

This Picture is of one half of the left eye. The eye is 15 feet across and the iris
is 10 feet wide. The little white circle in the eye is the owl’s Twinkle.

As of today we have completed the horizontal sewing of panels to complete all 16 vertiacal gores. The top cap panels have been put together, registration marks installed and we will start to sew the long gores soon!

A big thank you to all the club members who have helped already – but there is still much to do! Watch for brie’s posts looking for help when she will be coming out to keep working on the balloon.
