Options D and E for the rock netting have finally been procured and photographed for comment.

I have an excuse for my slow progress this time - busy taking advantage of the settled weather and I am painting the outside of the house.

Option D is net curtain. I think that the thread spacing is too close, but I am advised that I can practice my lace making skills by pulling threads to make a coarser grid:



Option E is a dress making material, as suggested by the very clever Mrs Keith:



I think that you will agree that we have a clear winner...

Definitely option E.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Great rockfaces developing there Keith, that was a cliffhanger about what options D & E were!

Beehive yourself, it has to be option E! :D … I'll get my coat.

I have enhanced Option A slightly by adding some rust.

Enhanced Option A on the left and Option E on the right. Temporarily placed against a cliff face for comparison purposes:

Thank you Kevin. Yes, why did I doubt her? Just what I was looking for!

Weather permitting, need it to cool down a bit otherwise there are too many outside distractions, I will be having an attempt at the sea in the harbour soon. Interested in your progress with the pond on Windmill Hill.  :beers:

Hi Keith,

This morning I repainted the bottom of the pond so it is not quite such a vivid blue, and sorted out the bullrushes, and the fisherman's area. The paint is now dry, and after lunch I will pour the water  :worried:

Will keep you posted  :D

All best wishes
Kevin

Thanks for the updates. I would suggest that Option A (on the left) is appropriate for rock climbers whilst Option E (on the right) is appropriate for preventing rock debris falling below.

Tidy Up Time

I have just purchased and installed a new paint store for the vast sum of £1.



The perfect size for paint tins.

However, I have serious doubts about its suitability for the stated purpose...



Sorry, I can't work out how to rotate this image in my gallery. It says, "Handy for clothes, etc". Maybe suitable for 1 1/2 pairs of trainer socks, i.e. one sock per drawer.  :D

I could really use one of those, too, Keith. Where did you buy it from, please?

Hi Chris, I got it from Poundland. I don't know whether you have such things in sunny Prague? The drawers are just big enough to hold the small tins from Humbrol, Revell. Not big enough for railmatch paint pots though.

It's really good (well a bit flimsy, but hey what do you expect for a quid?) and a typical man solution to tidy up. Everything is all in one place and not tidied such that you can't find what you are looking for.  :doh:

If you like I can investigate postage costs. it's very light so it will be size that will dictate cost.

Looks neat.
If you are like me you open each drawer in turn looking for the orange only to remember that orange (being the colour I use least) is somewhere else because not all the tins fit in my new storebox.
But....where actually did I hide the orange pot?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
