Very Belated

These photos say it all. We celebrated being married for 50 years on 23rd December. Neither of us can remember why we got married two days before Christmas although the family seem to think the date was definitely peculiar. I am sure there must have been a good reason! My eldest daughter insisted I dig out the wedding albums. They were all very taken with the bridemaids' outfits - which are I admit very 1960s. Imagine, dark burgundy taffeta. Taffeta was very popular in those days.

And here is Michael at the celebration lunch in his best silk shirt.

This is a batik done by our grandson, Chris for the occasion.  We shall treasure this. Note the text message!!

Of course we celebrated Christmas as well but a description of that can wait till tomorrow. As can my resolutions. No point in waiting for the New Year.

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.
