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.


  1. I'm glad you're out of hospital and home. It's always better to recuperate at home, in your own bed. Hope you get well soon! Merry Christmas to you and Dorothy!

  2. I hope you are on the mend now, best wishes for improved health in 2019

  3. Oh dear Pat.
    Do take great care and try not to do too much.
    I will tell the girls at MTF when we meet at the weekend.

  4. really sorry to hear this - MTF send their best wishes

  5. Hope you are contiuing to recover. I look forward to more of your photography.

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.
