Morning Glory Sample Page

This is a page from the Morning Glory book. All looking very nice but not if coloured green. The paintings were scanned in and two of the pictures look very odd in colour. This one is okay. Before attempting to do any Photoshop treatment, I intend to print all the pages out on the final paper and on the Inkjet. Definitely tomorrow. 

I have been to the Creative Textiles class and spent the time designing the decoration on a haori (Japanese workman's jacket). I then drove to my daughter in Leamington Spa and had lunch and admired her new bathroom. Visited the local Indian sweetshop and brought home too much. Drove home in time to receive Michael back from the day hospice. Later went out to do a massive shop and buy two new dustbins.

It was a good 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.
