    Completed my Gemini a week later than expected, I'll try get out next weekend and get pictures of my Gemini in the wild... In my case Gemini forgot to shave so we'll see how it goes. Plans pending I may end up making my friend's back porch work, not ideal but I think I can make do.

    I finished up the seam ripping and snaps this evening. A tip on the ripping. I was able to pull thread from two squares at a time by slicing the thread with the seam ripper, then pulling about an inch of thread out from under the other stitch. I could then grab it with my fingers and pull. I also tried doing three squares at a time, and that was a 50-50 proposition.

    Shock cord is due in tomorrow, so I hope to have this wrapped up then. I am making it for my son, should beat the pants off of the sleeping bag I have rigged as an underquilt for him.

    When I did the ripping on the second quilt, I ended up "cutting" one side with the ripper at the middle and just past the edge of each square, doing the entire side and then going back to pull the threads out. Most of them came out easily with fingers. Went MUCH faster then the first quilt, which took so long I considered throwing in the towel.

    Yeah, my son is just starting in Boy Scouts and I think I might be more excited about it than he is. Been waiting a while to get back into "real" camping (which even for the good stuff is way cheaper than hauling the family around in an RV!) Of course, I got some extra Costco quilts so my plan was to have him make his own UQ/TQ set. Feel free to ping me in a month or two and see how that went...

    Loan me yours and I'll tell you how it works! Although that deep maroon and gray would look good with those new black RidgeRunners ...

    Finally got my sons finished yesterday morning. The shock cord did not make it to the house in time for last weekends camping trip. We tried it out last night in the back yard, and it seemed to work fine. The clew suspension seems to work much better than the heavy shock cord used on my UGQ, Don't know that I can bring myself to modify a brand new UQ...
