Cally's Convergence Entry

Cally Booker has published a blog on her entry for Convergence 2010 yardage. Quite awesome. The 3-D-ness is quite astounding.  I have seen Daryl Lancaster's entry and Lillian Wgipple's (120/2 silk) and am feelingd epressed and inadequate.
Never mind, here's my garden

Clematis Armandii BEFORE
AFTER. Two windows have surfaced!! And the calladiums are visible


  1. I can't wait to see yours. I am dying to know how they will display such varied colours and textures - I envisage my bath towel being like a Fantasia hippo-in-a-tutu among all the delicate gauzy fabrics.

  2. Somebody did some serious pruning! That took courage, not only the shears, but the ladder...
    I'm sure your yardage will be beautiful - no need to feel inadequate. Just being accepted means it must be lovely!

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.
