Been way too long since I have posted here. Sorry to anyone(if there is anyone) reading this.
I will be starting my OU degree course on Oct. Wondering sometimes how I will fit it all in, but I am sure I will be able.
Now much weaving going on lately becaues of all the shows. The main loom is set up for some damask woven scarves in a geometric pattern at first. I am also winding a warp for some painted silk wraps. All the red ones have been sold lately. Must be a year for everyone to wear red LOL
This is one of the new scarves that are on my website

Cycling into Ellesmere

I decide to cycle to Ellesmere this morning to do some weaving at my exhibition in SPACE. Thought I would go all the on my electric bike along the canal. Now I have cycled on this bike to Ellesmere with no problem. But didn't check the mileage along the canal. This happens to be more than 5 miles longer than going by road. hence the ******** battery on the bike ran out about 5 miles before Ellesmere. 5 Miles cycling on a bike that weighs around 28kgs is really no fun and to cap it all I got stung by something on my back. Picture me stopping really quickly ripping off my top with no care if anyone was around and dancing around swearing like mad. I was REALLY glad to get to Ellesmere

Magical Sunday Morning

Got up just after 4am today and cycled down to the River Dee in pitch darkness. There were at least 3 foxes calling in the woods at the end of the road when I got up and several owls hooting as well.
I had to slide down a about 15ft down steep slop on my bum to get to the river and then sat and watched the sky lighten and many bats fly around.
I took loads of photos trying to actually take a pic of a bat but, just could not do it

It was absolutely magical watching the sky lighten and hearing all the birds wake up. I had to make myself leave otherwise I could have stayed there all day
 I really enjoyed my bacon butties when I got home though.

Just got back from a lovely walk near Llanarmon in the Ceiriog Valley. Had a great time playing with my new camera. Will be going full speed next week getting ready for the International Eisteddfod

Back from Beaumaris. Great weekend, sales were good but the weather was pretty miserable for the whole weekend. I ended up wearing a thermal vest most of the time!!!! I did hope to take some photos of the Menai Straits. The only time I could get out and take the photos ie early in the morning and in the evening (when we finished) you couldn't even see over the straits properly. Lovely sunshine on the drive home till Llandudno though
