Finished and Packed Up

I managed to weave more than a metre per day on the Megado and finished the fabric late afternoon on Saturday. Mind you, I did little else except on the 1985 Bible. So last evening was spent carefully sewing in the yarn ends where I had started a new bobbin. I did not finish the repairs before bedtime so there I was at 0700 hours this morning in the sitting room, still in pyjamas, finishing the yardage. The rest of the day was spent taking unsatisfactory photographs but eventually - - . What with an hour spent negotiating with DHL to pick up the package tomorrow, it was1730 before I collapsed and declared work over for the day.  And this evening I intend to wallow in Midsomer Murders so do not bother asking me to do anything till tomorrow. 

In between times,I have stripped the Bible's spine and it is all nice and clean. I will repair the pages tomorrow and show some photos on this blog.

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.
