While I was away, the world seems to have been blogging like crazy. Are you always as busy as this?
Thanks to my aunt’s recent recommendation, I have started following Elizabeth Barton’s blog, and I find her cogitations really interesting. Like this one about conveying emotion in a visual art form. She has a real gift for putting words around a process that can be hard to capture.
I was also amused to see a post by Laura Fry which featured the very same method of replacing knotty warp threads which I failed at so dismally the other day. Laura was really talking about challenges of a rather more serious nature, but dodgy warps don’t help! I’m pleased to report that I was able to repair my warp end quite successfully, and even have the picture to prove it.
Actually, now I look at the photo I can see that the thread on the surface pretty much obscures what I was doing — but that’s probably just as well since you might start pointing out my mistakes.
Meanwhile, the prize for longest-running project goes to Evelyn who has been handspinning natural-coloured cotton for 15 years — although she has only just got around to blogging about it! I’m so impressed I am (almost) speechless.
