No Dorothy

I have managed to complete a lot of jobs, although they are a bit boring, like accounts.

Yesterday I turned out my studio, putting cones away in the right drawer, collected a lot of stuff to get rid off. Today was a busy day. I have volunteered to help out at the National Needlework Archive. I am transferring handwritten notes to the computer and scanning in hand drawings. A number of people there so coffee and lunch are very sociable. Then to my music class where we listened to 19th century opera. Rather nice to sit through six excerpts of one's favourite operas.

And a handsome iris from last Saturday.

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.
