    If you makes you feel better....the first tarp I made was out of non-waterproof fabric))))) Well...at least I made better on the second one.
    Way to go.

    Yep, as they say, it isn't where you start, it's where you finish! But so glad to read I'm not alone in doing dumb things!

    Maybe one day...

    One of the guys I hung with this weekend has a CPAP. He uses a car jumpstart battery...a very economical option. He is supposed to send me all the info as I am looking for a solution for my husband's CPAP. I'll pass it along to you.

    Maybe we should start a new thread , where people can come clean about diy mistakes they have made! (what to name it, "true confessions"?......."next thing you know"..........."no one was more surprised than I when....." or " I never thought it would happen to me"!)
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    UPDATE-
    I finished attaching the new fabric this morning. It is getting easier and faster each time.
    I got right into restuffing the baffles with my son's help and had it stuffed and sewn up by noon.
    The outer and inner fabric is now only about 1 1/4 inches apart due to cutting the old fabric away but that should be fine.
    It looks just like the first incarnation now that it is stuffed and has lofted. I still have to sew the end channels and grosgrain. I will post some finished photos when I get it done. That should be sometime this week.
