Us in our glad rags just about to set off for Glyndebourne to see Cosi fan Tutte. Left to Right Dorothy (my sister), me, Maddie (my granddaughter), Anne (my daughter). The photo was taken on the balcony of my grandson's balcony in his Brighton flat where we stayed the night. We had a lovely time. The opera was well produced and well sung. The men were particularly good.  Lovely dinner during the interval and a walk through the grounds looking at what people were picnicking on and the clothes they were wearing. Tucked up in bed in Brighton by 11pm. We left this morning at 8 am and were in Malvern at 11. Dorothy had left her car packed and set off alnost at once for Dundee as she has to be back tonight.

I have generated a huge list of 'things I ought to be doing'. And have implemented one or two, like picking some red currants. Must go and do a few more things.

Added later

I opened the post which included a copy of the Complex Weavers Journal and was flabbergasted to recognise the fabric on the cover as mine!!!!

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.
