And continue with the sail... keeping it up with a small cloth pin...

Then i had to rearrange and reposition some ropes correctly.. a bit of diluted white glue to keep the ends straight and some weight till glue dries...

Making few blocks with a hook... first, wrapped a wire around the block, added a rope on the opposite end off the hook, twist the wire and make a hook. Then, siezing the rope and freeze it with a glue. The whole block was dropped in blackening solution. With seizing the rope and freeze it first, the blackening solution will no "blackened" the rope, because the glue will prevent solution going into the rope. It is not a bid deal if seizing is done after blackening, just rope has to be pulled a bit more so the blackened rope is removed...

... and ended up on pin. I put a small amount of white glue to freeze the knot... when is dry, less visible than CA glue.
