Okay so now the "flamboyant male decorator" wants us to make a pillow/cushion in the shape of a ball. You know, to toss around. He wants to use Mohair. The problem is how do you make a pattern for a basketball shaped pillow? Rose told him if he can find one we can use for a pattern we will give it a shot. We are too busy to look for one.

Borrow a basketball from your local school/kid down the street. wrap it in masking tape and mark the seams. Carefully cut and remove the tape and stick the sections to pieces of brown paper. Add your seam allowance and presto---there is your pattern.

We have a ton of kids in this neighborhood. We were walking the dogs last night and spied a basketball in a neighbors driveway. Hmm. Thanks for the suggestion Darren, I will consider it.

After a long hiatus I was finally able to go kayak fishing today. During my floating adventure I found a rubber basketball. I found a place on shore where I could toss it and come back later to retrieve it. Later I presented Darren's cleaver pattern process to Rose and told her where the basket ball was located. She told me in no uncertain terms that we will not be making a basketball shaped pillow. :(

The good news is I caught a 14" Red Fish. First Red Fish I've landed from the kayak. Bad news is Florida regulation says minimum size for Red Fish is 18". Damn that was a good looking fish.

"She told me in no uncertain terms that we will not be making a basketball shaped pillow. :("

I've been rather fond of Rose ---until now [pout]. why does she not want to do this? I think it would be kinda cool.

I no longer have the web site, but if you google you might find it. It showed patterns and angles for all types of shapes. Balls, cones, squares, etc. All you needed to do was add for your seam allowance.

I made a round fabric cone pillow, like a big Hershey's Kiss. I printed out the pattern, enlarging it to the size I wanted, then added seam allowance and sewed it together. Then I took it apart, checked everything, sewed it together, took it apart, checked again, then sewed it together for a perfect cone pillow. Easy, right?

Kool on the red fish. It's amazing how much it helps the fish population when we have regulations for throwing back some of the smaller fish.

Yep! It was very tempting to keep it but the fine for size-limit fishing violation in Florida is a second-degree misdemeanor carrying a maximum penalty of 60 days in jail and $500 fine per violation

Many years ago now, there were several high profile cases in West Virginia where people were being followed by strangers and then assaulted. West Virginia passed legislation putting severe penalties for stalking. The governor gave a press announcement saying he was passing legislation to halt all stalking. The governors office got hundreds of complaints from concerned citizens saying that if this law went into effect all the lakes would run out of fish. True story.

I've been pondering this all day and cannot figure what stalking has to do with lakes running out of fish. I know there is a logical answer but it must be hanging up there just out of my reach.

The point being made here is; take away the constraints and restrictions on fishing, then the lakes would run out of
fish. 

This thread has a good mix of ideas/points being made, so takes/understanding is like upholstering -
meaning not always easy to understand by all.

Anyway, hope the ball cover idea works for any who try it and fishing is satisfying.
