Wisley Gardens

We went to Wisley Gardens today. Lots to see. The new Glasshouses are full of lovely plants

But the alpines and rock garden were good too

After three consecutive days spent rushing around the United Kingdom, I am pleased to announce that I intend to stay at home for the next four days. I have a very long list of jobs, starting with watering the greenhouse. All my seedlings have germinated like mad and I need to watch them carefully.  I hope to finish tying on a warp on the Meyer - and to do a day's lino cutting. This is a novelty. I have never done any in this house. It will be interesting to see how it goes.

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.
