Just after the cutting off--
and now, hanging up and out of the way. The studio is a MAJOR wreck and needs excessive vacuuming--yes, I do mean excessive.
I'm very happy to have this off the loom by my end-of-October self-imposed deadline. I looked back in a studio journal today and see that I was beginning the weaving on June 3. Almost five months... but quite a bit of that time was spent not weaving--at least on this tapestry.
I'll be using half-Damascus for the edges, then sewing a velcro strip at the top to be attached to velcro covered wood bar. Finishing will start tomorrow.
Now... to concentrate on the workshop experience coming up next week! Four days with Silvia Heyden--how I'm looking forward to it. The inspiration I gained from spending a short time with her in May, along with other TWS members, is reflected in this tapestry. Wonder what next week will bring?!
