Malvern in Mist

Malvern in Mist sounds better than Malvern in the Fog. I get a good view through the leafless trees of the Severn Valley but not today. Looking that way which into the valley below, I can see maybe 50 yards. Looking along the hills is shown above. Very Japanese with conifers half visible. Over head, the sky is blue and cloudless.

It is coming up to 10 am and I have already woven 0.25 m on the Megado. It has to be completed by Friday. I am hoping to get another 0.5 m done today. I should have done some yesterday but, after the family left, I did not feel like it and attended to a bit of Japanese bookbinding. I have it all laid out ready to sew up and will get that done today too.

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.
