Getting on with things

Lots of irises in bloom. I deliberately excluded them from the things to be left. But I am picking and choosing which I take. So there is a large collection of potted up plants sitting on the forecourt.

A few of my Californian irises.
And the first rose. They are going to be covered with flowers. But they can be replaced whereas the irises cannot.
And I have got the Megado up and running. Weaving is a bit slow at 35 ppi but I will get there.

There is a shadowy pattern and yes the pattern does have short floats in it. They are very short.

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.
