Canvas work and oil

I’ve applied six or seven coats of Danish oil to all my woodwork. That should do for the start of the season. I will take a small bottle of it onboard, just to top up during the summer.
Some of the stitching is perishing on my sprayhood. I carried out running repairs on board, and finally finished the job today . Looks rough but it should hold. The main trick to the sewing is not to stab yourself somewhere painful.
