Recent weaving

I have been meaning for a while to post some pictures of recently woven items, so here is the first.

It is a tote bag that I made for Tamsin, and she was pleased with it so I may try some more. The warp is a cream cotton and the weft is a combination of the same cotton and a navy blue cotton /linen slub which I had used previously for curtains. It made a nice heavy fabric which was just right for the purpose. The only thing is I think a new sewing machine could come in useful for sewing thick items like this. LOL but that will have to go on the wish list for now!

Home again

I have just returned from a lovely week in the UK, except for the weather which was pretty much wet wet wet. How nice it was to catch up with friends and family and not have to muck out each day. LOL

We celebrated Tamsins birthday on 30th with a nice meal at La Vista in the marina nearby.

Then at the weekend we went to my brother Julians wedding . It was really lovely and we certainly thought one of the best weddings we have ever attended. It was lovely to meet up with family not seen for ages and also to meet new family and friends. If you are reading this when you get home Jules, we hope you had a great honeymoon!!

The day before we came home we met up with other dear friends who we have not seen since before we moved to France, and yet another lovely meal! I think it will now be time to diet. lol
