We planted these martagon lilies in this spot a long time ago, 15 years? They have flowered reliably and don't seem to suffer from disease or slugs. This year they threw up these two enormous spikes. I do hope it is not a swansong!

This is from some photos taken in Japan by a friend of food trays. She had no idea what she was eating most of the time.  She also took a huge number of photos in the Kyoto Textile Museum, most of which I can understand but a couple bother me. I will report further when I have consulted with some experts. Some lovely fabrics done with pickup.

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.
