    I discovered today that a piece of florist's wire makes a great aid to burying cord.

    Don't forget to put a bead in the adjustable loop to prevent it disappearing into the bury.

    Argh-h-h!!! I just received (today) 100 ft. of 7/64" Amsteel blue...black in color. Can't do anything with it for a while...I'm leaving the country for two weeks tomorrow and still need to pack tonite.

    That's gotta be the suck, but hopefully you're leaving the country for a vacation! You'll have something waiting for you when you get back.

    Wife and I are headed to Portugal & Spain for two weeks on vacation! We've been planning this trip for 2 years. Will be meeting friends from CO in Spain and spending most of the time with them! We are eager to say the least!

    Thanks for asking!

    The beaches of Spain could get a married man several bruises on his arm if he doesn't wear his sunglasses...just a little tip from someone that's been there.
    nail your shoes to the kitchen floor lace 'em up and bar the door and thank the lucky stars for the roof over you

    Stage 1: DIY Whoopie Slings complete.

    I know it's simple things that everybody here surely knows how to do...but learning new things makes me feel like a super genius.

    Stage 2: Adjustable Ridgeline on the morrow.
