In hospital again

I was sent in to hospital again because my sodium level was at a low level at a level of 123. And that is too low. They promptly stopped a medication I have taken it for about 8years but apparently it reduces the sodium level. So one day later there was a level of 128. Safety!

So I am getting stronger every day and I can see an eventual return to normality. Dorothy and I are having an exhibition in the Textile Centre at Greenham and in theory we are hanging tomorrow. But there is the small problem of the snow forecast to blanket the south and I think we may not be going out anywhere.

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.
