Anglesey day 1

Today we started out with Dorothy’s car loaded down with two adults, their luggage and one large dog and his luggage. No small dog who has gone to stay with our favourite dog sitter, Julia and he is no doubt being spoilt rigid. I did not think he would be happy with such a long journey - seven hours. He cries all the way even on a ten minute car trip and I cannot take to hear him so unhappy. Now of course I worry all the time if he is happy and okay,

We are here in a cottage in Anglesey for a week and have seen the coast and the sea and planned tomorrow’s outing. There is a very pretty garden and I have practised with the macro lens. One of the objectives of this week is photos of the sea but today I concentrated on flowers in the sunshine. I am definitely getting better!!

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.
