WOYWW 182 - Still out to sea.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Time for some WOYWW, thanks to Julia at The Stamping Ground.Snap a picture of your own and join in the fun if you've the inclination : D.

The bit of purple fun foam is a very low tech means of marking the middle of a whorl at regularish intervals. I made it back in 1998 and it still works well, though it is a bit grimy. The file is to open the holes in the wooden wheels so they can be spindle whorls. I think the bobby pins were left by my daughter when she was foraging for supplies. Or the bobby pin fairy has been at work. The whorls will become top-whorl spindles once a bit of dowel is added.

The tiny drill I use (with a pin-vise? from the hobby store).

I'm not sure if it's from the residue of the sea-themed bead swap, but these four separately spun (on spindles) remind me of the sea, so I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with them. Trying to find the fiber I used for each one so I can figure out quantity and project size. Sometimes a serendipitous approach makes a lot of work lol.
