The yardage is off the loom. It is not yet washed and felted. The section on the left of the photo shows the reverse of the fabric. There is quite a lot of it and I will have to lay out a pattern to see whether I can get a coat out of it.
Yesterday I was exhausted at the end of the day.
1) I completed the special issue of the Shuttle and emailed it to the printer. He raised two queries and I changed those and emailed it back. Since then silence.
2) I set about the Exhibition to be held in October/November. This meant typing out lists of entries for the Rainbow of Scarves and the cushions, realising that I was short of complete data and emailing everyone to get it. A lot of people have replied but not everyone.3) I selected photos of the looms at the Newbury Coat event. Linda Scurr is writing two articles, one for Handwoven!! Fame at last.
4) I created a new A1 poster on the topic of the Newbury Coat in 2011
The Guild seems to have taken up a lot of life recently. I did see to the Diversified Plain Weave draft for the next thing on the Megado. The draft is done but tonight I need to check through the calculations of how much yarn I need. I am off to Oxford in a few minutes to visit teh Ashmolean so the ordering cannot be done until tomorrow anyway.
