The effort put into the garden is paying off this springtime.
The front garden. The back garden is not so good but is coming on. However the auricula theatre is back in use.
And my auriculas are having problems with vine weevils. So much reading of instructions on packets.

On other fronts, I have got the fan reed piece finished and the Louet Kombo cleared for trials on velvet.

I spent some time taking 'artistic' photos of the piece. This is in an attempt to improve the photos I send in to exhibitions. The problem with fan reed piece is that it needs to be shown as a length so that warp can be seen.

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.
