    Another new tarp in the making

    Having purchased a new adjustable binding foot for my thread injectors I thought I'd give it a whirl.

    The tarp is a square tarp 160cm x 160cm in the super light weight spinnaker material.



    This is a shot of the new foot. 20 well spent

    Finding it really good trying other bits and bobs out on the machine. A bar strap system will probably be on the cards very soon.

    Just curious, what are you going to use your tarp for? Seems small for a hammock as the diagonal is only ~7'. And can you tell us about the Spinnaker?

    This one is really small so not for hammock use. Its a practise one, just trying out the new foot and some design options.

    your thread injecting looks aweasome sir!
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Randy : yea but just remember yer roots and where ya come from....you got Hennessy in yer blood son......
