Yvelines, north-west of Paris, France.
I went across town after work to the archery shop.

Picked up a 68" bow with a draw weight of 35lbs, to get started again after a 25 year break :O_O: and half a dozen carbon-fibre arrows.

I also bought a stick of the blue resin that the chap in the shop used to fix the piles in the shafts... thinking I might be able to use it as temporary glue for holding bits together while fitting up, drilling, that sort of thing, when making knives, jewellery, other bits of general metalwork.

I have two dozen arrows that I ordered a couple of weeks ago currently in transit.

Oh I do loads of things. Always doing something.today I made some antler tine topped ferro rods and antler buttons. Tomorrow I plan to use some air dry clay and cookie cutters to make Xmas decorations to sell at a craft fair. Then there is the ongoing project of making shopping bags from recycled materials which I give out free to cut plastic bag use..... never a dull moment. Then if I get fed up crafting things there is foraging and making jam or wine or wierd flavoured spirits. (Hawthorn vodka is my last idea) there is also knitting felting carving spoons...badly..... ( must practice more).... list goes on. I'll have a go at anything. Made a leather belt, pouch, and knife sheath this year, and a wool bushshirt shirt. Next bushcraft project is a wood gas stove from tins. I love it.

Sorry Mike not yet posted any photos as I don't know how. Not good with computers in fact don't have one. Just use my phone. Still with these dark evenings switch off the tele, put on a cd or radio and get going there are plenty of ideas to inspire . Good luck.

Today I bought a Tormek T-4 Bushcraft Edition water cooled sharpening system. Well its actually for xmas from my wife but that's a long way off when things need to be played with.
Was after one last year but finally made up my mind that it is a great purchase.

Cracking bit of kit mate; worth the money for all manner of sharpening - the triton version has cheaper jugs that fit just like the Tormek brand but cheaper
