A Malvern friend has just been to Japan for four weeks to see the cherry blossom. She brought me back this purse of silk brocade from the Nishijin Textile Centre. Look at the wrapping paper! It is printed with a drawloom. And the box it came in has a very delicate design on it.
I spent a morning last week showing my collection of textiles to her grand-daughter who is doing GCSE in Textiles. I am still not sure it helped her apart from telling er which local museums to go to. Interesting that she took at least one photo of everything I showed her.
I have nearly finished the threading up of the fan reed project. Should be wound on and tied up today. Then I have check which colour of weft I prefer.
Apart from that, the Common thinks it is spring time. The lime trees and white beams are starting to leaf. The chestnuts are practically out and the grass is starting to grow.
