At then end of February 2013

Time is flying. It’s been a very busy month. I have had a visit from my dear Michigan friends, Kati and John. While they were in Brisbane, I made sure that Kati did a ceremonial cutting off of a warp from “Kati’s loom”. It’s the drawloom that I acquired from her a few years ago.Kati cutting off the warp. I made sure I finished it before she arrived.On the drive down to Canberra we got to stop off at Wellington. I had always wondered what the sculpture was. It was an appropriate place to let the visitors stretch their legs.

It’s an interesting mix of media.

About the sculpture

At Canberra we got to see the  Toulouse Lautrec exhibition on at the National Art Gallery. It was one of the highlights for Kati.

They went and a daughter celebrated a birthday at Surfer’s Paradise. The waves were amazing. Dawn breaks on another day older.

On the last drive back to Sturt, I dismantled my 24 shaft loom and put it in the back of my car. Amazingly it fitted with 4 cm to spare in the length.

A couple of days later and I have a loom back together again AND it works beautifully!

And talking of looms… for the weavers: This is a great loom for crawling under. Most looms require weavers to be contortionists. Just check out how much room Maureen has to fix a tie up.Maureen fixing the loom she's weaviong a floor rug on.

    Kay great to catch up at Sturt the other day. The work done on the rug loom is terrific and I know it will look great hanging in the exhibition space. The current piece on loom shows a great deal of research and attention to detail – it has paid off! Will look forward to following your blog updates and hope to get to Qld to view the exhibition.
