sew_short: Hi ??
frogger70301: Cheryl D.
nor4man93553: Cheryl D
Fearless Leader: So there are three blends, Hey Kay
sew_short: Oh gosh - didn't recognize her
sew_short: Hey NJ - sorry had to take a nap
Fearless Leader: Sleep is good
Fearless Leader: no worries
Fearless Leader: instead of only doing two blends
sew_short: til the phone rings hehe
Fearless Leader: here I did three
Fearless Leader: dark green to black
Fearless Leader: dark green to yellow green
Fearless Leader: yellow green to pearl
Fearless Leader: now to fan fold them and stack
nor4man93553: ok
Fearless Leader: we're doing another leaf but pushing the edge of the
blend envelope
chelyha55: ok here's what I need to see
Fearless Leader: LOL
Fearless Leader: know how to fold a paper fan?
Fearless Leader: just like that, if there's no questions I'll start
chelyha55: oh yeah I've done fan folds
Fearless Leader: we don't need to connect these ribbons
chelyha55: gives you a different look
nor4man93553: none here
Fearless Leader: we can do three fan folds and then just stack them
Fearless Leader: here I go then
Fearless Leader: now that the three ribbons are fan folded, I'll stack
them and reduce them
Fearless Leader: once I get a long loaf of these three stacks I'll cut
it in half and put the light edges together, ok?
jude (greatauntjudy) joined the room
chelyha55: ok. Hi Jude
jude: Howdy!
nor4man93553: Hi Jude ok NJ
jyladams: where did you cut?
chelyha55: ok so she stacked them on top of each other
sew_short: Cut the long part in half?
chelyha55: I dont know if she cut them yet
frogger70301: no, she's reducing the stack.
chelyha55: looks like she is reducing the stack
chelyha55: ok
sew_short: yes
frogger70301: lengthening too.
sew_short: But this is where I lost her before
chelyha55: I've never done 3 fan folds on top of each other
chelyha55: something new to try!
jyladams: put the light edges together how? On top together, end to
end ? How?
chelyha55: don't know yet
sew_short: I see
chelyha55: ok here is the cut
chelyha55: ah, I see
jyladams: like a sandwich!
sew_short: ok
sew_short: Is she reducing again?
nor4man93553: yes
Fearless Leader: now I'll use this to cut sections out for the leaf
Fearless Leader: we'll have deep shadows with that black
Fearless Leader: I'll stack the sliced sections and do a chevron flip
for our leaf cane
chelyha55: I'm always looking for new ways to do leaf canes
sew_short: ok - go slow
chelyha55: she flattened it didn't she
frogger70301: yeah
chelyha55: ok
nor4man93553: yes
Fearless Leader: ok, questions?
Fearless Leader: Longevity, morphology, incept date?
Fearless Leader: for BladeRunner Fans
sew_short: huh?
chelyha55: so you flattened it and cut sections
Fearless Leader: "I just do eyes," says Dr. Chu
Fearless Leader: channeling a movie, Kay, that's all
sew_short: lol
Fearless Leader: yes I flattened it and cut it into 8 sections and
took a section and pressed it.
Fearless Leader: for the vein
chelyha55: oh you pressed it
Fearless Leader: one section, that was two sections long got pressed
Fearless Leader: that's why I pinched one edge and made it into a
sew_short: lol
Fearless Leader: so it'll go through the rollers
chelyha55: ok
sew_short: I think you need to do that part again .... you cut a
section off and then ......
chelyha55: put it thru the rollers
Fearless Leader: I pinched the edge into a point
chelyha55: after she pinched the edge
Fearless Leader: for a tapered edge to go into the rollers better
Fearless Leader: I get a sandwich of these colors but thinned out
Fearless Leader: for the center vein
Fearless Leader: of the leaf
chelyha55: now we get to see what she does with thatl
Fearless Leader: we can get fancy and do veins all
Fearless Leader: but we won't on this one
Fearless Leader: so I'm going to stack these sections and square it
off, cut diagonally for the chevron flip
Fearless Leader: everyone with me so far?
chelyha55: yes
nor4man93553: yes
sew_short: I think
Fearless Leader: ok so I stacked 6 and squared it off
chelyha55: ok
sew_short: six chunks cut off?
nor4man93553: gotcha
sew_short: ok
Fearless Leader: six of these sections
sew_short: k
Fearless Leader: this line is where I'm going to cut
chelyha55: oh, I see
Fearless Leader: then we can use that vein sheet
sew_short: a diagonal line
Fearless Leader: see how that chevron flip is manifest?
Fearless Leader: we can take those extra sections and press them for
surround sheet, let me show you how to taper the edge before pressing
sew_short: Cut diagonally, then lay them side by side like a Christmas
nor4man93553: yes I have been wanting to learn this now I got it
Fearless Leader: cut diagonally and flip one half around, then you can
form the chevron, Kay
sew_short: Wonder why viewing the webcam from work is so much clearer
than here at home..... probably my Mac
chelyha55 left the room
nor4man93553: i have kind of a fuzy picture too
sew_short: Are your colors true?
chelyha55 joined the room
nor4man93553: no not by a long shot
chelyha55: very cool
jyladams: thanks so much for the demo- gotta go see about life now.
Nite Jyl
nor4man93553: Good night Jyl
jyladams left the room
sew_short: Sweet Dreams Jyl
sew_short: Is the Chevron for leaves?
Fearless Leader: ok, shall I do a circle of leaves again?
chelyha55: yes
sew_short: yes
chelyha55: yes do the circle
Fearless Leader: I'm going to press leaves on this sheet, you start
with the circle that is the furthest out, lay down the slices
nor4man93553: ok NJ is slicing the leaf cane and she is going to put
the slices on a sheet of green in a circle
Fearless Leader: and when you press, turn the sheet and narrow the
rollers to get them spread out
nor4man93553: I have one ? about this do you keep going from #1 to # 2
or do you go # 1 # 2 then # 3 to #4 and so on
Fearless Leader: Great Question Cheryl D
Fearless Leader: I go to #1 to #2, and then go back to #1 and then to
nor4man93553: Ok that's what I thought
nor4man93553: I just wanted to make sure
sew_short: Wow, that circle of leaves is pretty.
sew_short: Oh, another layer
nor4man93553: yes Kay she does 3 or 4 altogether
chelyha55: that technique would work for my bead bases
chelyha55: when I do a flat piece and add more leaves
Fearless Leader: the door, brb
chelyha55: in applique
nor4man93553: Oh Cheryl That sounds great
sew_short: Yes, it would
chelyha55: I'll try it
Fearless Leader: ok, now check this out
Fearless Leader: with and without black
sew_short: OK, now what can be done with this?
nor4man93553: I love these leafs I am a leaf junkie anyway
chelyha55: me too
nor4man93553: Cover a box
nor4man93553: or a tin
chelyha55: i always want to make something I can wear
Fearless Leader: see how the black makes stronger
chelyha55: or sell to someone else to wear :)
sew_short: Hummm, me thinks the black looks better
nor4man93553: Like Cheryl H said make base beads
chelyha55: oh yes
chelyha55: more dramatic
nor4man93553: ya I like the black a lot better too
sew_short: Base Beads??
chelyha55: it depends on what you are doing
chelyha55: base beads
sew_short: Sorry, what are base beads
chelyha55: a center of scrap clay that you put the slices on
sew_short: Oh (the guts!)
chelyha55: yeah! LOL
nor4man93553: yep
nor4man93553: :D
sew_short: that would save on the cane slices, huh?
chelyha55: oh yes
nor4man93553: yep
chelyha55: definitely
sew_short: I'm going to have to give this a try
Fearless Leader: that's the best I can do for now
Fearless Leader: I'll save log here
