Stuck on the M4

This morning, I set off down the M4 to my bookbinding class but came to a stop on the motorway. A blown tyre, really shredded. And no mobile with me. I am very bad.  at remembering the mobile. So I had to send poor Dorothy an urgent email and she turned up thirty minutes later. So I rang the AA saying Come and fetch me only for them to say But you have Ford assistance andthey will be with you shortly. I need to wait that is all
 Well there will not be any bookbinding today.

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.
