    Well, after reading thru this thread I am almost afraid to post ..........the things you gals have listed are so *ladylike*........ icon_redface.gif icon_redface.gif
    I like playing with ....wood........making shelves, using old barn siding to make wall hangings, taking an old vanity or a relic of a chair & giving it a face life. Sometimes I use parts of old chairs to embelish birdhouses I have made. Kinda something out of nothing project......... icon_redface.gif Give me a hammer, nails, & some power tools & stand clear!

    Barb....fading back into the shadows after that statement


    No need to feel bad. My floor loom and one spinning wheel I bought as unfinished kits. I stained the wood and put them together. I've also "tinkered" with the loom a little bit. I built (from scratch) my loom bench. When I was married, I was the one putting together all the DIY furniture. Looking around my apartment I can see a microwave cabinet, my computer desk, kitchen table, bookshelves, entertainment center and storage boxes that I assembled. I love building things, but apartment living really doesn't allow much. One Mother's Day, I bought myself a power drill as a Mother's Day gift. It's one of the best gifts I ever gave myself.

    Now that I'm getting ready to move, my loom is going to have to be disassembled, and then reassembled once I get where I'm going. And once I can get my own place, I look forward to all kinds of things like painting walls, refinishing wood, gardening and so on. icon_biggrin.gif

    I used to make bobbin lace. I still have bobbins attached to my lace-making pillow, but it's another hobby that I've lost interest in for the time being. It's not as hard as it looks but the supplies are sometimes hard to come by. I used to live near a lace museum that promoted this craft. I was even a member of the museum for a couple of years and always enjoy visting whenever I'm in the area. They have some information on line. Their web site is www.thelacemuseum.org.

    I bought my beginner's bobbin lace kit and some books from them.

    I got a couple of books, and a homemade pillow, I've even got probably 4 dozen bobbins, it just looks so intimidating, I'm almost scared to try it.

    It is not intiminating at all--there are basically only two stitches--all you are doing is twisting threads and pinning to hold in place--basically only two stitches half and whole stitch and you need to work with only two bobbins at a time and lots of pins. Although some people work with lots and lots of pairs of bobbins--no one does in the beginning--for a simple bookmark you usually start with 12 bobbins. Books that Bridget Cook writes are pretty good and the easiest form of bobbin lace is called torchon lace. A really good beginning book is "The Torchon Lace Workbook" by Bridget Cook.

    I also used to shop at Lacis because at the time I didn't live that far from them. My husband bought me a begginer's kit from them when I first started and they can give lots of advice to get started.
