It's been very quiet on the crafting front, mainly due to the weather. Most of our time has been spent with Welshy giving our truck Myfanwy a new paint job and I've been playing chauffeur to The Boy, taking him out to birthday parties and home ed activities. Fortunately a broken angle and a break from driving duties gave us a chance to play around with the micro-lathe.
Welshy got started on a Bodhran Beater for a friend we met at home ed camp.
and I decided to make myself a new Tunisian Crochet Hook.
It was my first proper go on a lathe so small and I have to say that it was great fun. The hook is turned from a hazel rod, that we somehow acquired at Bearded Theory Festival, and I decided to leave a little bit of the bark on at the end, just for contrast. It is finished with two coats of Black Bison Wax.
