    Do you cut and soak your own bark?

    Sort of. I had the chance to forage the bark from some mature limes that sadly had to be felled after a pollution incident killed them off. They'd been dead for about a year when I got to them so the bark had been well soaked by rain. The fibres came off fairly easily, but where they're clumped it needs further soaking. I understand the procedure for fresh cut bark is to soak it for about a month in (ideally running) water. Separating the fibres is just the sort of long-winded outdoor task that fills a good few hours during lockdown, not to mention twisting them into cordage.

    How did you find the journey and the people on the way?

    Looking at this


    And dreaming of this.

    Tip for posting photos. If your image is rejected by TES as too big, you can usually get round this by doing a screenshot on your phone or iPad, or a snip on your PC.

    Keep safe, everyone

    Friendly, funny, interesting, weird. The bikers were hilarious. Everytime we encountered a group it put us in mind of 'Every which way but loose'!

    Things with wood, I have a fine covering of dust from sanding and fingers crispy with shellac.

    (For some reason TES will only let me post pictures from my computer as a thumbnail, maybe it will be sorted in the update :confused:)
