Today let’s do a mini craft! I saw these little flags at a junk store a while ago but figured I would save some money and diy. I made about 30 of them for our Billy Idol Day lunch and only used 3 >_>

So cute though right?

I’m currently off on a mini Easter get away with James, Celina and Toby and because I won’t have internet access I thought I should schedule something… my brain can’t think about anything other than this holiday though so….  Silent Snapshots? Silent Saturdays? Maybe we can make that a thing for a while!

Enjoy my random arty photos and with any luck (assuming the weather isn’t working against me), I’ll be all relaxed next week from laying on a beach with a good book! I hope you all have a lovely weekend whether you are celebrating Easter or not ^_^

So in part one I tried my hand with a drop spindle and found that I enjoyed spinning but didn’t enjoy drop spindles. I spent ages scouring the internet to see if I could find a faster way to do things or build my own wheel from stuff I already had etc. New spinning wheels are very expensive and also huge and I just wasn’t ready to commit. So I just continued reading a lot until I understood the mechanics and became impatient.

Isn’t it typical that I have all of these ideas when no shops are open for parts? >_>

After researching Charkhas which are a type of hand turned spinning wheel I got to the point of “Screw it, I’ll do it myself”. So I gave it a little thought and then dragged out my sewing machine. All a Charkha is, is a spike which spins around so you can add twist to the roving and then wrap it around the spike for storage. The bobbin winder on my sewing machine spins quickly and is pedal controlled… easy diy!

I think my obsession in spinning was a bit inevitable. I love learning new things and when we came home from Bendigo Woollen Mills last year I had picked up a massive bag of roving for $9 and there was no way I could use it all for needle felting.

For this week’s quiet snapshots post we went to visit James’ brother in Carlton. I seem to get in these moods which I just feel like taking more artsy nonsense photos lately so here is Carlton at night.

The tv and I have had our differences over the years. Mostly because it’s the only thing which was left in our apartment which was black so it seemed to suck light into it. Last year I gave it a washi tape make over but it still wasn’t exactly what I wanted so I set out again this year to finally be done with it.

This time I went all out and used actual paint.

It’s been a really long and rough week, hence the lack of posts. So today, to ease back into some calmness, I wanted to show you my favourite hat.
