No More Fever

I have been told by several people that the last blog was garbage. And yes I agree. The trouble was that I was still unwell when I wrote that. I have recovered now and the fever is all over. I am using as a criterion, completing the Times difficult sudoku which I can usually knock off easily. After the fever, I had no idea even how to start. But I am back to form now.

I went to the Guild meeting last Saturday and was tired out. Today I went to steward at the Guild exhibition and was not tired out. So I have hopes of final recovery. On Friday I am going to London for the first day of a course on soft covered books. I need to think of a way of getting my tools there.

  1. Glad to hear you're getting back to normal. A long time ago I had a very high temperature and didn't realise how sick I was. One of the doctors explained that for every 1 degree C temperature rise, you need 10 to 15% more oxygen, but if you don't have extra oxygen then everything, including your brain, works 10 to 15% less well than normal. It made sense to me

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.
