Christmas Eve

If it isn’t done by now then it’ll have to wait!

But before I sign off for the feast, here are some memories from the second half of 2016.

In July I warped up the Delta – after a long hiatus – to weave colour gamps. This was a delightful project, and part of my preparation for visiting Highland Guild later in the year.

In August I was topping up my Waterfront collection, and using the Magic Dobby to explore random walks.

So by September I had quite a few samples as well as some finished pieces.


The dyepots came out in October so that I could create a limited edition of chocolate mint scarves.


A real highlight in November was weaving in the Grand Gallery at the National Museum. (For those who couldn’t make it, there is now a chance to catch up by video.)


And throughout December these joyful ‘patchwork’ scarves – and their siblings in the chocolate mint edition – have been heading out into the world via the Tea Green pop-up in Dundee, while I have been sampling for new work still to come.


Thank you for reading along with me this year, and may your feasting be merry!
