So yeah, as I touched on yesterday, I went a little crazy over the weekend making lamps:
They are a bunch of birthday, housewarming and wedding presents that I've been putting off making for ages, for fear (and loathing) of the drive to Handworks in Prahran. It's totally irrational I know. I just dislike the drive along King Street and Kings Way, the parking difficulties and the general vibe of the area. But it's the ONLY place I've found that sell lampshade frames!
Apart from an excuse to showcase my fabric in a self indulgent manner... they're also an opportunity to practice taking nice photos.
I still have a long way to go, but it's a fun way to kill an hour or so.
Of course, if you want to try your hand making your own lampshades (either with a ready made frame or by recovering an old frame) there's this tute that I wrote up awhile ago :)
