Tommye, what are the basting stitches for?

Tommye McClure Scanlin said...

Maggie,
The basting stitches are just big running stitches that are taken through to the cartoon at the back to hold it near the top edge of the weaving. I stitch close to the top to be able to see the cartoon more easily by holding it near the edge I'm weaving. These are clipped out as I proceed--none are included in the finished tapestry.

Ah, thank you for the info on the basting stitches.
I'm amazed at how much you've gotten done since you've been back. It looks well, growthy! :-)
