A new lathe, on loan to us, that has been keeping my husband's hands busy.  A step up from our small lathe that has opened up new possibilities.  I am very excited about this, and not just because I collect wooden bowls, (though that might be a small factor), and not just because I get to keep all of his "proofs of concept" (though I do enjoy that too).

Last week my friend took me to a lecture on Hinduism, something new to me.
Today I'll be teaching her how to nuno felt, something new to her.
She's bringing some Starbuck's pumpkin spice lattes with her, something new to both of us.

I have some stones bundled up in leaves, inspired by the inimitable India Flint, whose book I treated myself to a few weeks ago and have been ogling ever since.  She's an alchemist, to be sure.

This world is so big and there's so much to learn.

Have you done anything new lately?

oh how I wish i were a neighbour of yours, we'd be dabbling and learning new things most days!
Swapping/bartering goods, crafting, experimenting....oooooooooo!

Love worked wood and wood in it's natural state, pebbles, collect them, most go outside, some come inside if only for a while.

If I win the lottery, I'm moving your way! (you'd perhaps hope I wouldn't win eough LOL!)

Have a great weekend,

I love India's work,and I love yours also!
A friend gave me some bits of vintage fabric and I have been stitching up some acorns and oak leaves with it, I love the way they are turning out.

I took a natural dyeing workshop in August and I've been experimenting with a couple of natural dyes and leaves. I've done some recycled linen, some shirts and some silk scarves.
