I have successfully published a trial post from my laptop, still cannot do it from my desktop. Well what have I not done recently? I have been preparing for the exhibition at Nature in Art. This is a Midlands Textile Forum do.
Yesterday was spent hanging the exhibition -well helping, getting in the way, whatever you care to call it. I find hanging a difficult exercise. I find it easier if each artist hangs her work together but I admit it is nicer if the pieces are mixed up and there is a theme. My problem is that I cannot see what to do.
Today was a day off and I paid bills, filed bits of paper, tidied up and went for a very long walk. Now to see if google will deign to publish my blog input

- I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
