the gremlins are banished, weaving progresses
there are five different colours, four threaded blocks and six treadling blocks
that mixes colours and patterns up and the repetition is not so obvious
the word puce comes from the French for flea – the explanation is even worse than the word itself – yuck!
It was Marie Antoinette’s favorite colour
I’ve never given the word or colour much thought but it is now a big favorite, more of it to come.
Amiee is spinning paper yarn on an antique bobbin winder she ordered from Sweden
a clever idea she got from Velma
I have 3 bobbin winders, all LeClerc. One approximately 35 years old (on loan to a student) and the other 2 of unknown vintage.
this one lives in the kitchen – so I can wind bobbins while supper cooks
my favorite and the one we use in the studio, the action is easy and smooth
so, I’m off to wind bobbins!
