Ufton Fields

I spent the weekend at my daughter, Anne's house, fitting for her jacket. Measured her, made a toile, measured her again and have come home to get on with the jacket. We did knock off for a walk round Ufton Fields, a local nature reserve. The weather was good and the signs of autumn unmistakeable.

I have cropped and amalgamated the photos to show off the autumn colours. I have not done much else today and I was quite pleased to have accomplished a walk.

About Me

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.
