Christmas Day

So here is Michael and the Christmas table. All the presents have been unwrapped and Michael took a lot of photos of the various members of the family which are very good - more portraits than anything else.

The other end of the table three minutes later!! Robin and Ruth standing up serving out the soup he made. The main course was Suffolk ham and all the trimmings. All the young ones are on the other side of the table. 

A jacket from Sarawak given to me by Robin and Ruth. Gorgeous - A mixture of inkle loom, backstrap, ikat and braids!! Not to mention the Chinese coins used as buttons. The back view is just as spectacular -see below.

I cleaned up the room upstairs - studio is too grand a word for it. And resolved to try to finish a project a day for the next week. Will report further tomorrow.

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.
