If there's one thing I deal with on a mammoth scale, it's words. So I've been tempted back to blogging. Let's see if I can keep this up and make better use of my words than I have before.
I've never done this before, so I hope it works... Blocks 7-12 of the Modern HST Sampler. Here is a photo showing all six of them. I tried to stick as closely as I could to the colours shown in the tutorials, relying on the designers' design and colour ability. I have none of my … Continue reading Link party
I believe that social media can be a powerful tool for people who can use them properly. Me, I'm handicapped in a couple of ways, mainly due to the fact that (a) I don't have anything original to contribute, which makes it less likely that any of my me-too posts will find a fan following … Continue reading Running as fast as you can

My last post but … Continue reading More like a comet
I wrote a guest post for a friend, Tanushree at Karaashilp. Do go and check it out, as well as the other guests posts she's having in her Guest Post Marathon.
The whole of June was dry. In terms of rains in Mumbai as well as words from me on this blog. The rains have finally arrived here with a vengeance and I decided to come back and talk. My stash is in a garage, corrugated cardboard wrapped and clingfilmed. I spent one month working on … Continue reading Dry spell
...is how much I wove during my training at the Weavers' Service Centre. And this is how it looks. I haven't decided yet what I will do with it. My greatest learning was the tie-up and actual weaving on a floor loom. In the middle, I thought for sure I'd been cured of any desire … Continue reading 10 m in 30 days
