Silent-ish Saturdays

I will at some point start talking properly in these again >_>

DIY Washi Tape Flags

Today let’s do a mini craft! I saw these little flags at a junk store a while ago but figured I would save some money and diy. I made about 30 of them for our Billy Idol Day lunch and only used 3 >_>

So cute though right?

Apparently I Do Own Jeans – OOTD

You guys are always teasing me about whether I even own any pants well haha I managed to dig some out!

Silent Snapshots

I’m currently off on a mini Easter get away with James, Celina and Toby and because I won’t have internet access I thought I should schedule something… my brain can’t think about anything other than this holiday though so….  Silent Snapshots? Silent Saturdays? Maybe we can make that a thing for a while!

Enjoy my random arty photos and with any luck (assuming the weather isn’t working against me), I’ll be all relaxed next week from laying on a beach with a good book! I hope you all have a lovely weekend whether you are celebrating Easter or not ^_^

Spinning Adventure- DIY Sewing Machine Spinning Wheel

So in part one I tried my hand with a drop spindle and found that I enjoyed spinning but didn’t enjoy drop spindles. I spent ages scouring the internet to see if I could find a faster way to do things or build my own wheel from stuff I already had etc. New spinning wheels are very expensive and also huge and I just wasn’t ready to commit. So I just continued reading a lot until I understood the mechanics and became impatient.

Isn’t it typical that I have all of these ideas when no shops are open for parts? >_>

After researching Charkhas which are a type of hand turned spinning wheel I got to the point of “Screw it, I’ll do it myself”. So I gave it a little thought and then dragged out my sewing machine. All a Charkha is, is a spike which spins around so you can add twist to the roving and then wrap it around the spike for storage. The bobbin winder on my sewing machine spins quickly and is pedal controlled… easy diy!

Spinning Adventure – DIY Drop Spindle

I think my obsession in spinning was a bit inevitable. I love learning new things and when we came home from Bendigo Woollen Mills last year I had picked up a massive bag of roving for $9 and there was no way I could use it all for needle felting.
