Recycling Fabric Workshop ~ Simple Living Toowoomba

Today our Simple Living Toowoomba group held a workshop about recycling fabric which was a great time of sharing ideas and we could have talked for hours. A couple of the ladies even wore their creations which were very creative and colourful.

Using pine resin on beeswax wraps

Recently our Simple Living Toowoomba group had a workshop showing us how to make beeswax wraps. Of course beeswax is used to coat the fabric but to make it stick much better pine resin is added as well. One of my friends sent me a link to an article called Why we don't sell gum rosin/tree resin for your beeswax wraps. I forwarded the link onto Suanne from Green Dandelion who presented our workshop and sells the equipment needed to make your own wraps as I knew she had her finger on the pulse and would have looked into this issue beforehand. She emailed me back and is happy for me to share the information she sent.

Honey and Rosehip Soap

I am not sure why but we seem to be going through soap rather quickly these days. So I thought I would make a couple of smaller batches of soap from Jan Berry's Simple and Natural Soapmaking. The first one I made was based on her Wild Rosehips and Honey Soap.

Brrr! A chilly start to winter

It has been a cool start to winter and the cold snap arrived right on cue! I was outside and could feel the cold front moving in but we can't really complain as we have had lots of beautifully warm autumn days.

Certainly one of a kind!

A few days ago I heard about a new Op Shop (Thrift Shop for my Northern Hemisphere readers) in town. Well it was new to me but apparently has been open for a couple of months already. So I called in today to check it out and was pleasantly surprised.
