Having a Play

Just popped back home for a quick bite to eat and a cup of tea, thought i'd show you this large oval that I just trailed with white slip. Must dash, lots more work to do.

Hey Matt

That does look like fun. Are you using a bulb trailer or the inner tube version?! You doing more of the same or on to something else after tea? Enjoy!

Hello from me, the lady and the kitty Gary :)
Scott, I use bulb trailers although I have got an inner tube trailer that Hannah made and I couldn't get on with it. My hands shake quite alot most of the time and although the inner tube is very good and accurate it shows all the shakes a little more than the bulbs. I also have a cows horn trailer with a goose quill siliconed into the end which leaves a lovely wide flowing line of slip, but it's really pretty difficult to use. Just need a bit more practice with it I guess. Oh yes and one of my bulb trailers has the end cut a bit wider for wider lines, ha ha all that and I don't really do much trailing!
Nice one both.

Great to see that someone who shakes can sliptrail! I shake too...and was afraid that after watching Hannah M here in Virginia in April I would be too discouraged to try. Yours looks terrific!
