Wisley is the garden of the Royal Horticultural Society and we visited today. At this time of year, the herbaceous borders are the draw.

So we noted the names of plants we fancied. The greenhouses were pretty good too with lots of fuschias and hibiscuses. But it has to be said that my zinnias are pretty good too.

At the art Journalling class in Milwaukee, I produced a line drawing and wondered if it would translate into a weaving draft. It does.
The bookbinding room has been tidied up. This was mainly dealing with the large number of linocuts I seem to have made. Now it is all put away, I could in theory bind a book!

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.
