    hanging hugs.

    I happened across this today on lunch break and don't recall seeing them on this forum before. Thought I'd post the link for perusal. Just something hammock to look at. If it's been on here bfore sorry to repost and if not, well there ya go. Can't help stopping to look at anything hammock/ related to hammocks/ can be adopted into hammockdom or simply reminds me of hammocks.

    Embarassing is being the last item in a discount bin.

    No matter where you go, it will never be as cool as it was just before you got there. So thanks for ruining it for everyone.

    Pretty cool. I like the fur lined ones. I could probably talk my wife into trying one of those out in the house.

    the only thing is the PRICE!!! the regular sized fur lined ones are $100!!! that's quite a bit considering all they do is sew some fur into $20 worth of fabric...

    Getting the kids into it

    It could help getting the kids into hammocking, especially those preteen girls who have to accessorize everything.

    Can I request the color of hat worn while sewing?



    How many of your thread injectors are that blinged out?

    That's one of the weirdest photos I have seen ever...

    It look at his spool set up... That would work as long as your running a hem on the right side of fabric... But what about sewing two things together, it looks like your fabric would get all hacked up in your thread...

    That's very interesting! My dad just got back from Uganda, and he said they could use some of the stuff I make (see link in signature). I had actually had the thought of making up quite a few hammocks and fire starters to send with him next time he goes. That site just confirms that they would certainly be used.

    Now that's funny.

    When I look at the picture, I just thought the uniform of the tailor was the weird part, but there I go being judgemental simply based on appearances, when the real weird part has to do with the function of the set up.

    Thanks for the reminder to me of the need to look deeper.
