Fishes - and Defiance

I do not like the final result of my sewing which was shown here yesterday. It is pinned up at the end of the corridor and I just get gloomier every time I see it. I can think of nothing to improve it.

So I decided to take the taste out of my mouth  by doing something different and had a hunt through pieces of fabric which I have created at the Bourneville. I ended up with this one of printed fishes and seaweed plus a larger fish in Mola work.

This is how it is now. I am defiant about this.- trivial? yes, fun? yes, artistic merit?  none. Tough.

I have finished weaving a lace sample for the Guild records and am weaving a sample for my records. Then I shall set about weaving the scarf for the October Exhibition.

I have also revised the handout for the lace weave class ready for next Saturday. A reasonably productive day.

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.
