Starting Off the New Year

Yesterday I managed to attend the Kennet Valley Guild meeting and a performance of Berlioz's Les Troyens. This was a High Definition broadcast from the New York Met in our local theatre complex. Fantastic. A cast of hundreds, all singing their heads off! It started at five and lasted five hours. So I went to bed singing (in my head). 

The result is that today is the first day of the New Year I have been at home with no commitments to do anything outside the house.  And my New Year resolution is to finish off as many projects as I can as quickly as possible. I have all sorts of good ideas I would like to carry out but I must finish off some of those underway. It is all complicated by going to London  on Thursday to attend a one-day Complex Weavers class at Handweavers Studio - and I will take the opportunity to inspect their yarn!!

But the immediate job is to deal with the post and send out several emails arising from yesterday's Guild meeting. And I have not unpacked since returning from Dundee. So that's today gone.  Maybe I will get some textile work done so that I will some photos. Maybe!!

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.
