    I'm looking forward to learning from your projects.

    Good luck, and I'm looking forward to your series.
    Oh, excellent catch, Gargoyle! I said "down" when I should have said "100% Polyester batting filled." I will definitely make sure to point that out when I get to my UQ build session. Thanks! And, you are spot on correct... It certainly is not going to be my backpack UQ, but will be a warmer weather truck camping item. But, like you said, I needed a practice project to work out the kinks prior to making my "real" version. At $10 bucks, I figured it would be a great place to make mistakes without remorse or regret. Heh heh. I hope it works out the way I'm envisioning.

    Thanks for all the positive support, everybuggy! I'm well on my way into my hammock. I've done several small scale mock-ups and am ready to start on the real thing tomorrow. Stay tuned!!
