Biography
Hello there!
I've long felt the 'call to cultivate'. I found Paul and his stuff in 2017, and have been steadily watching and learning since.
I'm a Pod People, and have listened to all the numbered podcasts, up to #514.
I've visited Wheaton Labs several times now! Simply put, it's awesome.
I (still) feel pretty un-knowledgable about a lot (all?) of this stuff, but I'm really excited to learn, and learn, and learn.
That's part of why I am really into SkIP and PEP; because I can learn, and also because it is awesome.
My big-wild-crazy-scary-to-say-out-loud dream is to live in a town with no cars that can feed itself, even if I have to build it myself.

Disaster has struck. And Gnomes. Well, just one.

Here are my:
  - a picture of the broken window screen
  - a picture of the materials you're using for the repair
  - a picture of the repair in progress
  - a picture of the completed window screen repair

Thankfully the screen wasn't torn when it fell, so I re-installed the existing screen and gasket rubber with the blunt part of an olfa.

So is the PEP Badge tracker! For a limited time: $88 $32!

He's posted it, here: permies.com/t/119152#2384880

I just was wondering if this (or a different thread) was the right place to send him, and I don't know the troubleshooting formula for the freebie stuff.
I have someone who hoped to get the PEP Badge tracker as a dailyish freebie.

May I bring their post to this thread so we can sort things out together?
Hey Clayton,
Congrats! I don't know how the dailyish freebie stuff works, but I'm going to do a bit of searching to find the folks that do. Stand by.

My pants were wearing thin in the knees, and had one real hole going. Luckily I had some material leftover from making the pillow. The blue material is cotton, I edged the patches and then hand-sewed them on. Reading other's posts, I sewed the patch in the middle in addition to on the edge.

Lastly, I sewed the actual hole up, getting some of the patch material in on the party in the process (on purpose).

 -  Show your holey fabric, patch, thread, and needle or sewing machine
 -  Show your patch being sewn onto the fabric
 -  Show your completed patched fabric
 -  It doesn't have to be pretty but it does have to be functional.  Finish the edges of the patch so it doesn't fray.

My tubes have been popping, so I got an extra thick inner tube to replace it.

This bike has an internal hub gear, so it was a bit tricky to get back on.

What kind of lure does one use when fishing for pie?



Haha! Ummmm, a fork?
