Yeah!! Know what you mean!! :D

I spent many a night in a bush camp with my head in my R. M Williams "The Bushman's Handcrafts" book, trying to sort out strand 1 from strand 6, crossed over strand 4 & brought around the back over strand 5 and under strand 3 etc etc !!!!! :lol: :lol:

but ...... eventually it all comes together, you roll it on an old bread board & "bingo"..... look what I got!!!
