Removal, well partial removal

On Monday, four removal vans and a lot of men turned up at 0800 hours and stripped the house. They were gone four hours later leaving me to finish cleaning, lock up, deliver the keys and drive to Ruth's house. Tuesday was spent sorting out everything and visiting Rosie in order to cadge some orange 10/2 and 6/2 cotton as well as  bobbin winder. Mine are in store.then I sorted out the bank. Today was spent filling up forms for the lawyers which involved an awful lot of copying and downloading.

However I found time to look at a gallery's catalogue of Sonja DeLaunay and wondered whether some could be interpreted into weaving so I have spent time on drafts. The simpler ones work but the most complicated do not. I will continue because i am sure it an be done. Tomorrow Dorothy is coming down and we are going to see the house to measure various places. The day after I go to Madiera For a long weekend. Charlotte found out that the party of the year being held on Saturday. So we are going. I will take photos.

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.
