Joburg Airport

A last drive in the desert starting at 0730am, then a four seater Cessna for an hour. Then hours at Maun airport. The Botswanans don't believe in time keeping. Then to Joburg where we are now waiting a flight to London. So it is all over. A great deal to be said for both camps but I would not come again. Anne is determined to come back with the whole family. Me, I am looking forward to getting home to looms.

I have posted some blogs written during our stay in the desert but Google does not like one because it has a lot of photos and takes a long time to upload. I will do this tomorrow when I get home.

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.
