Sandra Rude has posted photos of some gorgeous Tall Bearded irises. Just to keep the Uk end up, below is a photos of two of my Californian irises(Pacific Coast irises). There are lots more coming. In fact the garden is looking good but needs some work which, of course, I do not have time for.

I have wound 75% of the warp for the Megado. This weekend is more Open Studios, so not much else will get done.

What with fighting with the printer (it will not print), having trouble down loading files and finding that the loudspeakers are not connected to my desktop, I am feeling that 'Things are against me'

  1. Your iris are very beautiful, too! I like the violet one, especially, and the yellow is a very cheerful color. Ours have been in the ground a few years, now, so with the rain this past winter, and the years of settling in, they've got lots of energy to spare. Best of luck with all your computer problems!

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.
