Go Gwendoline!

Hurrah, Gwendoline is going on her travels, but not to America, they’re a bit strange over there anyway. I am not sure if it is good or bad but she is going to the Ukraine. Not the Crimea so hopefully she should be safe.

I had wondered if they would cancel the exhibition and I won’t send her for a week or two just in case but it is a prestigious European textile exhibition called ‘Scythia 10 2014’ so I am really pleased to get her in there. It seems to cost quite a lot to get her there and back but I hope it will be worth it.

Gwendoline2Here is an image of her, I know I have put one up before but I still think she is quite wonderful and worth seeing again.


I haven’t done much weaving this week. A fortnight ago I went to see a nice man at the Lurex factory in Leicester and he said he had just come back from India and was coughing rather, three days later I went down with the most dreadful lurgy virus thing and am still not up to speed, well, not up to crawl let alone speed, hence I am sitting down writing the blog. I haven’t been in college for a week and will try to do a few hours each day next week just to keep things moving. Fortunately neither PJ or Mum have got it.

The plus side is that the lurex is working well in the tapestry and I am really glad I went to see the guy, he was so helpful, just unfortunate about the virus he gave me, I am pretty sure it was him. The factory was really interesting too.

Next week I have some prints in an exhibition in Chichester. It is at The Oxmarket Gallery which is a bit tucked out of the way but fairly well signposted. The prints are mezzotints and not my best work but extra work on them has been curtailed by my being in bed for the last 10 days. I will try to post some images of them but all that taking the photo and transferring it to the PC and making it look pretty etc is just too much faffing about at the moment.
