So, The Yarnburners' GO Ahead & Play piano is done! At least, that's what I've thought since the last work day (June 30). However, we hit a little snag. We stitched (very securely, I might add) over some parts that had to be opened for piano-tuning purposes! Silly me, I thought it was just the top that had to open! I should have paid attention when my childhood piano was tuned; failing that, I should have looked on YouTube just to make sure. I swear I have learned so many things from YouTube, I don't know why checking there didn't occur to me! Tim the Tuner sent me a link to this informative video - isn't it amazing?
I went and removed some of Kev's delightful seam stitches yesterday, and will go back tomorrow to alter the design ever-so-slightly, so "Betsy's" innards can be easily accessed for future tunings... we want her to sound her best! It's just a few minor adjustments; she's still going to be breathtaking when people in Indianapolis see her in public (August 1 through 18 - stay tuned for location specifics, coming soon!)
Here's another sneak peek for you:
