Norfolk again

Back to Norfolk for 2 weeks. This time there seems a great deal of wildlife, roe deer, stoats, rabbits. I have heard foxes barking. Not to mention birds. The swans have 7 cygnets and come round the caravans looking for scraps, accompanied at a safe distance by mallards. We feed the swans bread which is allowed but not allowed to the mallards. There are lots of different birds, egrets, oystercatchers, megansers (very handsome in black and white and red) and too many geese. They cackle nonstop. Below is Holkham Beach just after high tide.

I brought a load of craft stuff, Lino block to cut, warp to wind, but have done nothing except walk the Norfolk Coastal path with the dogs who are very happy. But NOW I am going to wind some warp.

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.
