Paid a visit to the wheel I first learned to spin on and finally used it for its intended purpose: flax spinning! It’s a beautiful old wheel and must have been meant for me because, as you can see the seat is shaped like a fiddle.
New shuttle and a new warp to test out the home-made raddle (it works as it should). Also, an electric drill and a pencil make for a decent bobbin winder, as it turns out. And so continues the eternal quest for nice edges…
Being back in Windsor inevitably results in the Macgyvering of old tabletop looms. Observe the paper clip reed hook, lack of shuttle, and I dare not post a photo of the Christmas ribbon that’s tying up the shafts. Tis rather slow-going, but in the end, there will be dishcloths.
Wow, I meant to post this a while ago! These Sea Urchin cushions that I designed and knitted for my Textiles for the Marketplace class (with the wonderful Leslie Armstrong) are currently in the KEW showroom (facebook). Thank you to the proprietors of KEW for your support and feedback throughout this project!
