It has snowed over night and is going to snow again. And we have installed in the house, two builders taking the sittingroom ceiling apart to insulate it and two central heating men installing a new boiler in the cellar. So no heating or water until tomorrow afternoon and lots of noise. I have filled two large pans and the kettle with water and washed everything in sight.

I had thought that I would deal with all the email business while restricted to my office ( the rest of the house is definitely out of bounds) but the email is not functioning properly and I am not at all sure that what I send leaves the house. I am going to have to make some phone calls to check on things for next Saturday when the spring weaving class starts.

We went to see The Hobbit yesterday. Over long and too many fights with orcs mounted on Wargs. I don't see why they had to spin out a quite small book into three films but the spinning out is padding. But the acting was good and so was the scenery. Oh well, I am just a crotchety old lady suffering from nothing going to plan.

I have got a lot of the 13 meter warp wound on to the Kennet Valley loom. and ought to get that completed today.

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.
