These are all woven with my handspun on a 12 inch Ashford Knitter’s rigid heddle loom.

I made them at the end of 2010. It’s high time to warp the loom again, since the New Year it’s been all spinning and no weaving.

Work is frenetic at the moment but I am making time to go to a weekly patchwork class on the island – two peaceful hours with likeminded people, and lovely log cabin to play with.

And out of this something very exciting is being born – the new Tiree Tapestry Group – tapestry in the sense of community tapestry, using a wide range of creative textile techniques. We’ll have a web site soon but there’s a little bit about us on our Facebook page. Our first meeting is on Friday – I can’t wait!

    Fabulous scarves! (I was going to write that I like the last one best, but I went back to check and now I really can’t decide because they are all so lovely.) I hope you’ll give me a demonstration in April…
