So I had a thought about getting rid of the pinch twists.

It was a challenge weaving it like this, not sure I prefer it though.

Then it was playing with the elephant time.................ohhhhh matron!!

Trying to take out the pinch twists by the trunk/head joint.
Put in the tulip/apple twist, the trunk has a lot of movement this way.

But then I wanted there to look like a mouth so added a pinch twist under the tulip/apple twist.

I have just finished filming the six designs, it has taken three hours which is
about the average time. 30 mins per design.

The shield and cat were one take, the elephant an ear twist popped so we had to start again.
And something happened while starting to film the cat that has never happened before on camera...
I sneezed, so much useless information.

We then made the fox and horse in one take and then the last design the teddy............
that was 3/4 takes. I changed the construction so that it was easier to film as we have to
keep in shot the whole time and forgot half way through where I was and then we had a
complete unroll of the head section which was five bubbles, it was quite funny but we filmed it again.

Off to take a few pictures and then this afternoon I'm going to attempt making the love heart
before I go out for my evening show tonight along the river at Staines.

So this afternoon it was the turn of the weaved flower heart to be filmed.
All was going OK and then I had an idea that made the centre section filler
a lot easier to explain so filmed version two all in one take.

There is quite a bit to film on this so very happy it was just one take.

After 3 hours of filming and then after 4 hours................and all done for the day.

Well of to do two hours of ballooning over in Staines now along the river.

It's Sunday, could it be? is it? Yes it's another BalloonTube Sunday.
This week we have the ride in horse for you to view. Hope it's of use to some and
if you do make it then pleas epost a picture here or even over on balloon chat.

On the tutorial I think I made the neck of the horse a little too long,
it was filmed a few months back now.

I have already filmed all the tutorials for the rest of the year so some are over six months
old when we come to publish them and you always see a tweek or two you might make
if filmed again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OW-3bM66LYE

I was up-loading tomorrow's edition of BalloonTube and the tutorial is too long.
So I had to verify my account and so now I'm the proud owner of a verified youtube channel.

No idea if that is good, bad or indifferent.

There is good news and bad news, the good news is that tomorrow is BalloonTube Sunday.
The bad news is that from next year I will only be posting one design per month and
probably on the first Sunday. There will be 50 designs up by the New Year and it makes
things a little less stressful for me with coming up with designs and then getting
someone to edit the filming for me etc. Tomorrow I'm posting the Fox.
