It is five years since we last rented this house. We have done it five times since the start which was 2000. Interesting that there is a full family turnout. Even one grandson,currently working in Australia has returned to be with us. So there is a fair assortment of cousins.

Today is my turn to cook and, by request it is French fish soup.A lot of work for 13 people. Work is dished out equally. This means some days you can do what you like and just sit down to supper! On Wednesday we made a much longed for trip north to the viaduct de Millau. We extensively patronisedthe service station at the north end where there is a good viewing platform. The station also includes a fine cafe and a deli!

The point of the visit was photography. The views that I could get were not the best I could imagine. I reckon the best place was in a helicopter down the valley about level with the road!

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.
