Straw Into Gold - A Spell to Bring Wealth

The little man took the necklace, seated himself before the wheel, and whirr, whirr, whirr! three times round and the bobbin was full; then he took up another, and whirr, whirr, whirr! three times round, and that was full; and so he went on till the morning, when all the straw had been spun, and all the bobbins were full of gold.

Note: If you wish to include lunar magic in your work, this spell is best performed during a waxing moon.

Most sewing or craft stores will sell empty spools or bobbins for sewing machines. Acquire three such spools or bobbins and enough yellow embroidery floss or sport-weight yarn to fill them.

After sundown, light a candle (yellow or green is ideal, but white works also) and sit down with the bobbins and floss. Focus on the candle flame and think of the way in which you would like money to come into your life.

Once you have the idea firmly in mind, begin winding the floss slowly around the bobbin and continue until it is full. Repeat until you have filled all three bobbins, then blow out the candle.

Anoint the three bobbins with orange or amber oil. Place them into a small jar and leave it somewhere it will not be disturbed. If the desired wealth does not come into your life within three months, or if you need more money, repeat the spell and add the three new bobbins to the jar.

Poor Mans Go-tube .

Bamboo is one of those great natural products that has hundreds of uses and is easy to source in many parts of the world .

I remember watching a guide (ex Thai forces ) whilst trekking in the jungles of Norther Thailand who used a piece of cut bamboo to boil rice in .

Once it was cooked  he then split it with a large knife to make two platters  before splitting 2 thin sections of it to make improvised chop sticks  all in a matter of a minute.

Show here is a real simple way to make a watertight and floating container using an off cut piece of bamboo and a recycled wine cork .

 The larger the bamboo the more gear you can stash in it  but the harder it may be to plug the hole , this was just an improvised plug till I make a better bamboo cap to fit the cut end  and could work well for Geocaching too .

 I managed to bore a hole through into the bamboo just in front of the solid section allowing me to add a 550 para-cord lanyard and it also just happened to fit a stainless sewing spool with several meters of nano cord on .

Little visitor ( closes starter )

Bernard was quite perplexed by his current situation , and he was t very sure what to do about it either . You see Bernard had began to notice things in his home go missing , not important things like jewelry or money , just small barley noticeable things like spools of yarn , sewing needles , tissue paper , buttons and very often bits of food , at first Bernard had suspected mice but they when more interesting things turned up gone he shrugged off the idea.

Now it was t as if Bernard couldn’t replace the things he’d lost , he was t upset or angry with whatever little creature was doing this , no he was more curious about the little thing , he was very confused by what it could be , because for some reason where ever it had been always smelt like human to the old werewolf .

The other day Alex showed me a weird looking purple frog with a pointy face and my reaction to that was ‘now I want a cat that sews with it’s pointy nose’.

He added that it’s tail should be it’s string and now I’m set on the idea. I was needing a seamstress character and I still plan to make one but these little guys are fun to think about.

On the slow rise
your words are as
knives or butterflies.
Still sleeping in a
daydream, a walk-about
Trail of replicas to my
naked soul-
Fill my cup
see, swirl, sniff, sip, savor.
Atlas needlepointed
maps sinew of foxes.
Sahasrara up- right
Chiming daylight and
glowing hummingbirds
at night. Can we meet
: between :
life and death
love and hate
right and wrong :?:
flesh pressed
colors bleed
nations forgotten
ideas spooling
thread to sew a
a map to infinity.
