Many of us end of with Middle Eastern type carpet designs because we simply buy the large woven plastic "doggy" mats. You can find them at dog shows and I found mine on sale at a local Asian market. These are made of woven recycled plastic. One of the advantages is that while they get wet, the water seems to seep right through them to the ground.

Once the household is big enough or perhaps after another nearby household has formed, you can always then consider starting an official group with these households forming the nucleus of the group. Just try to be inclusive and don't get a household vs. group mentality going for that could destroy both.

      > In the STRUCTURES section of the Florilegium. You may have seen it already, though. I think you said you bought your two tents? A fly or shade pavilion should be much easier to sew and figure out the pattern for. There are some files in this same section on choosing the appropriate fabric for tents and sun shades.

      > Thank you for letting me know. I've wondered how much use it might still be with all the other stuff on the net now. If people are getting tired to my messages pointing to specific files here, just let me know and I'll cease or cut back. But I like to think that even if the person I'm replying to doesn't need a specific file, someone else on this list might find it of interest.
