ok, it looked ok at 4am, but to give you an idea why I was swearing so much...( pics ahoy )
So. Behind schedule and pissed (also have to clean up the house, and finish breaking down the last of the branches after the garden bin gets emptied this week). After this debacle we said FUCK THAT to mudding the reaper, and since it's poles and a skeleton, decided to wrap it in a robe and be done. Of course black material is an expensive bastard, so I went to lincraft (The one in the city was too far out of torasin
's way) and picked up 20m of calico and black dye. Don't go near our laundry sink, it looks like the friggin' black lagoon :P
Hit southland, grab more calico and dye Break tiki-skull from mould Set next tiki-skull to cure Dye calico
