At the Weaving Exhibition last autumn I was very taken with a cushion woven by Lesley Dunn and eventually got up courage to ask if I could buy it. Well she would not sell but volunteered to weave one if I would provide the indigo dyed yarn so I did and here are 'MY' cushions. Aren't they lovely? They will be placed on my new window seat - when the builder gets round to it!! The newly named studio is coming on nicely. The walls have all been plastered and the plumber is now in residence replacing a radiator. The electrician is due today as well. It looks as though it might all be finished in less than a week.
I am past the worst of the illness. All that is left is exhaustion. So I potter about, not very vigorously, for an hour and then read a book for an hour. I have managed to finish another square of 120/2 silk weaving. I resleyed and changed the draft to something more dramatic.
Last Saturday I looked out a length of silk kumihimo braid in two shades of blue which was intended to support this square of silk in its six-inch ring. And can I find it now? NO. I am annoyed. I could use narrow velvet ribbon but it would look nothing like so nice. Bah!
There are lots of things I ought to be doing but I have decided it would be wiser to take it easy for another day or two. I am teaching Japanese bookbinding on Sunday and it was be a good idea to be fit then.
