Still Trying Out Blogsy

So here I am trying a new iPad app called Blogsy. It is supposed to let you create a blog post off line and then you post it. The idea is that it saves on upload time and therefore money when in the wilds of Central Asia.

I have a sad occurrence to report. My Megado has broken down. It is the some of the relays which are at fault. So my deadline for submitting samples to the Fine Threads Study Group has just died. I have discussed the problem with Don Porritt and he is getting costs for me. If I sent the box of relays back to be mended, I would have to send it to Canada so shipping would be very expensive. So I have asked him to find out what the cost of a replacement box would be. In the meantime, tomorrow, I will remove the box from the Megado and see if a good clean up makes any difference. Unfair!!!

Now to try unloading photos into this trial blog. I walked on theCommon this afternoon in the spring sunshine. And then came home and took some photos of the garden.

The top photo is Camellia Cornish Snow which normally flowers from New Year to April. It started flowering a week ago!!! The lower one are some nice little daffodils. That will do for now.

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.
