peg loom weaving, textile design

The peg loom is really versatile and a great way to use of bits of yarns left-over from other work. This image from the book shows how different sized pegs produce different textures

Felt Making is like "Painting with Fibres!" The book is about the process of wet felting, building layers of wool fibres then working with hot, soapy water to shrink and felt the fibres. Start with the basic process then move on to bigger projects like jackets.

POWs, WWII, prisoners of war in Japan

Prisoners of War held in Japan and the Far East during WWII are often referred to as the Forgotten POWs as the war ended in May in Europe (VE Day) but was still going on in the Far East until August (VJ Day). The book is a homage to my father and all the others who suffered during and after the war.

If you fancy doing a long-distance trek and love Wales, this is the perfect choice! The map shows the route I walked, with my Aunt Jenni, 136 miles in 15 days. Average 8-10 miles a day, the longest days were 12 miles. What an adventure - why not try it for yourself? Walking Wales: the art lover's guide to Wye Valley Way
