More on Milos

Walking a lot each day and taking huge numbers of photos which I shall prune severely when back home. At the moment I am transferring only a few to the iPad each day. I have to choose six each day and then e erroneous discusses everyone else's' six. I am not. So sure about all this. I find I have enough of white with blue trim fishing villages. It was more fun at an opencast mine which is still working. 



With the occasional village.

Yesterday we were in a village with a very ancient church. Of course I was the one who asked if the church if the church was ever open to visitors. The effective reply, it is nice and we found some marvellous icons inside. 16thcentury apparently.
 And then there are beaches and little harbours.

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.
