Flying Solo

Because RUDE Girl is unwell, RUDE Boy had to go to the local Dream Big festival and promote a new local initiative titled Mend Melton [flyer above] without me.  He met up with Stephen Mack doing a bicycle repair demonstration.

RUDE Boy did tell me that he was complimented at the festival, on his vintage Levis’ #1 denim jeans.  The person thought the sashiko stitching had been done by machine.

 

 

Hopefully we will have more to post about Mend Melton ~ Fix It, Don’t Flick It, in the months to come.


RUDE Boy has been keen to get a VHS-C adapter or VHS camcorder, but was having no luck.  He then decided to explore transferring the VHS-C tape he had, into a standard VHS cassette.

The other day, I was rummaging around in the freebie bin at a local op shop.  In the bottom of the bin were quite a few VHS cassettes.  RUDE Boy rescued a couple of these for his project today.

Below is the link to our You Tube video, that sort of explains, what he wanted the old video cassettes for.  He ended up just needing to use one cassette for this project.

Beat The Man and avoid buying something that can be re-purposed, from what you have at hand [or that can be sourced elsewhere, without too much trouble].

    • Yes, RUDE Boy provided feedback to the organisers and thought it was a very good event. Pity about the weather. However, he was happy to participate. He was complimented on his boro [patched and stitched] jeans, and he wore his machine darned merino wool sweater too. In fact these two items have become like his uniform. He is out visiting today in them.

      Thanks for your well wishes Jacqui. I am still not 100 per cent but feeling much brighter.
