    canvas repairs advice

    This is a brilliant and timely post! I have to patch several areas on my boat cover where a combination of wear and cat scratching has torn the cover on the edges. Could I ask, what would be the best process for doing this. The patches will be approximately 4x6" through thick canvas...doubled in...

    A small collecton of skulls

    Nice! We (some students and I) came across a dead fox...I wondered about burying it to dig it back up again once all the fleshy bits had been eaten long do you think this would take? Seems like a good experiment to me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ramsoms are up

    Not a big fan of digging stuff up and moving it...I had a small patch growing wild in a small copse that I look after...someone kindly dug it all up...if I want garlic at home I plant a clove or two of the cultivated varieties
