When I stayed with Ruth and Robin this week, they had uncovered various things from their container of belongings from Kuala Lumpur. Some of them are shown above. These are antique wooden blocks probably for printing wax on fabric for batik but suitable for stamping on fabric. The biggest is about 6 inches square. They have all had a good scrub and maybe this week I might have enough time to play with them. The other thing they found was two rolls of Chinese paper which I bought in KL for lino-cuts. Again some day soon!! There are still things missing but then they have not got halfway through the boxes yet!! What is missing are two wooden stands for draping fabric over, very nicely ornamented with carving - from the Chinese Market in KL and a beautiful brush holder. from the same stall I have no idea what I can use this for but it is beautiful.
I have done more than half the work needed on changing heddle counts on the Kennet Valley loom. I ought to be able to finish that today. Tomorrow I am going to see The Hobbit but might start the warping up.
Both computers are still not functioning. An engineer has been commanded to attend on Monday!!
