New Day Book

I have been tidying up projects in the last few days. I framed two pieces for the Bourneville Exhibition but they are not totally assembled so no photos yet. I started ona mass production oif Morning Glory books but never got round to the assembly bit.

I did finish my new Day-book. This is covered in a piece of cloth I made 4 or 5 years ago. I like the way the leaves look on the spine.

The pages are a mixture of cartridge paper and fancy stuff I had round the house. It is pleasing to hold - the fabric is cotton and quite weighty. I don't usually do A4 books as they need hefty covers but I wanted to use this fabric wh9ich was designed for an A4 book and, anyway, an A4 book is more useful for a Day Book. I am going in for Just-in-Time manufacture! The old Day Book is within two pages of the end.

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.
