    How a DIY Project progresses

    DIY Gear Projects......I know that not all DIY projects follow this pattern but this is typical of how I feel some of my projects go .......

    Decide on project

    Research WWW for instructions

    2 weeks later find instructions on HammockForums

    Decide project is too advance for my abilities

    Look for new project

    Spend 3 weeks looking for materials

    Order material

    Out of Stock

    Order from a different place for twice the price

    Received materials

    Measure and cut material

    Discover you cut material too small

    Reorder material

    Receive new material

    Measure material twice and cut once

    Start sewing

    Thread injector breaks

    Buy new thread injector

    Run out of thread

    Order more thread

    Receive new thread

    Complete project

    Discover cottage industry on Hammock Forum has item you just made on sale for just twice what you paid for materials

    Throw sewing machine in trash

    Hey gunner76,

    Two weeks ago I bought a brand new sew... "thread injector" I bought 2 meters of scrap material to practice on. I'm out of material and have used 500 yards of thread. I now have many small squares of nylon with 500 yards of stitches of different types in them. Now to order the good material for a project.

    Suggestions ?
    Take care,
    Bluefin
