A raging fever

I have been very ill and it has been worrying. I was unconcious for two or three days and was apparently dolally not a good state to be in. The result is that I have to take it easy. And my sister who looked after me the big problem which was I wanted to get up and help with the all the windows being replaced as well as the decorator decorating. My problem was the use of words.things got called the wrong word and I could not explain myself. I know I am doing wrong but cannot prevent it.
I will need watch myself carefully. Dorothy tells me that

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.
