Some of you have shown an interest in what we did to make and use spindles.  I don't appear to have photos of the apple spindle session which I taught but I do have a photo of one of my friends teaching this using potatoes and twigs. 

This was out on St Martins Island in the harbour on a beautiful day.  I was teaching felt made mini pictures at this event. I got a little sunburned so appear even redder in the face than usual!

It is a fun thing to do when you have few resources and just want to have a go :)

I am going to give the stick and apple thing a try, come apple season. Meanwhile I am promised the loan of a drop spindle proper, so exciting :)
