The Newbury Coat issue was finished and despatched to Linda Scurr for checking. So that was done last night and I spent the next couple of hours, changing things and filling in the gaps. I got it all done and emailed it out to someone who is going to proof read it (he used to be a proof reader). So today will be my own and I think I will go and see the Capability Brown exhibition as the weather is set fair.
I I made up five of the cushions yesterday and this morning. These are the ones with a mid-blue indigo warp and various natural dyed wefts. I still have five more cushions to do! Two have a dark blue indigo weft. Although I have some matching cotton for the cushion backs, I have no matching sewing thread. So they will have to wait till I get to a suitable shop. I also have three cream/natural warp ones to do and will set about them later today.
Now the Newbury Coat issue of the Shuttle is about finished, I have been thinking about the exhibition in October/November and realised that I have a bit to do there. Mostly emailing everyone about labelling and collection. But also Chris Fletcher and I agreed to make cards up for sale and I intended to weave some more DPW which I wanted to do on the Megado. It will be practice for the entry for Small Expressions but it needs to be done soon!! So it is time to put the last bit of the cushion yarn onto the Megado. I have designed it, just have to wind the warp and get it on. Isn't it strange how you set out on a project and work backwards through the things that must be done first and end up with having to turn out a couple of cupboards or similar?
