What happens within the large areas (metapatterns?) is so appealing. I love watching this piece grow.

I like the thought of these areas containing metapatterns--thanks for mentioning that!

Tommye, what method are you using to create such crisp vertical lines? I've got a section of tapestry that I've woven, unwoven, rewoven, and unwoven, because I just can't seem to get a nice crisp line.
Thanks,
Erin

Erin,
If you mean the single warp line as seen in one of the detail photos, I'm sewing as I wrap, catching the warp next to the warp I'm wrapping every other time I go around the warp with the weft. It's a method of sew as you go for joining vertical slits that I learned from Archie & Susan. Susan has an article about it on their website (link to their website is at the left in my blog).

I've also got some pick and pick stripes in some areas.

Thank you for sharing the photos of your work. I love learning from the detail one can get with cameras these days. I also was interested in your outlining, as I am trying to get some definition in a tapestry I am working on. Beautiful tapestry, can't wait to see the finished product
