Out of Hospital

It has been a very long time since I blogged. But I have been in hospital,very ill. Reading hospital is okay and the staff have to put with a lot and I was not very understanding. I think they were glad to see me go. My disease was electrolytic imbalance and you can stay permanentl unwell. On the other hand you can get completely well in 2 or 3 months and they expect that of me. I get very tired but my memory is definitely returning. It has has been short term memory which has suffered most. So I am not to do much — and that includes driving. But that is for four weeks  at the moment.

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.
