What is it about seeing someone demonstrate a project that can make me believe I can…oh…turn fancy woodwork or lay tile or put in that granite countertop I have always wanted?
I saw here that I, too, could make myself a fiber blending hackle (just what I always wanted, dontcha’ know…) using only hair lifting picks, screws, and a piece of wood.
And a circular saw.
And four hands.
And linseed oil.
I have to give it to Wonderful Guy. He’s some kind of wonderful.
He dutifully drove me to WalMart , then Target searching for the hairpicks (which I found at the beauty supply place). And he helped with all the dangerous implements of destruction…and by helped, I mean by doing that part himself.
Then when I got down to brass tacks and tried the actual fibery blending? And quickly realized I didn’t know what I was doing?
He just said, ‘well, I suppose it takes some practice…’ And left me to my efforts.
So I am back to checking my resources, by which I mean YouTube. And have some new and fresh ideas of what I was not doing right. Also I have some ideas about a DIY diz, for which I was using…well, a button.
Like I said, some ideas. New and fresh.
