I've had a productive week, and once again have been making the most of the sunshine.  I think today may be the last real day of summer -  so I have  been making the most of it, and have been outside all day.  Walking on the downs, painting in my little  art shed, and down on the beach.  As you can see, I have been dyeing as well.  I needed more dyed silk warp to start my latest scarf.  I need to complete this in a couple of weeks because I am putting three pieces in a local textile exhibition (The Oxmarket in Chichester at the end of October).  I am busy planning my thoughts re. selling in January.  Sometimes I think I must delude myself......!!  Weaving, spinning and dyeing takes time and there's no way I'll probably ever end up with a large stock...hey, ho!  Keeps me happy just to think about it.  I have people wanting me to weave coats (!!) as well as scarves.  I do like a challenge, but as I always say, I don't take commissions, mainly because I feel stressed by having to produce something specific.  I like the freedom to be spontaneous.  If people like what I do  then fine.  If they don't, that's also fine.  No pressure on anyone.  Have a good week x 


  1. Such a wondrous riot of colour. I am so looking forward to seeing it all soon.

  2. I second Joanna above - a wondrous riot of colour there! Wonder what we shall be seeing as a result of all this.
