Oh! Maybe that's not me after all! Or maybe I'm channeling a weaver from the 1920s. Maybe she'll come in at night when I'm gone and finish this tapestry for me!
So here's the 2010 version of the weaver, hard at work on this dang tapestry that seems to grow longer every day. Oh, yeah... I AM weaving kudzu!
Here's the tapestry at the end of this day. Still several inches from the top and I've resigned myself to not having it off the loom to take to the Focus Gallery exhibit that will be in Asheville from April 24-June 15. I'll be exhibiting along with Diane Getty, like I mentioned in an earlier post. But that's OK since I'll be back in Asheville for the Guild's Fiber Days during the first weekend in May. I'll take it with me for my display during my demonstration then. And, who knows? It might even grow a few inches longer by then!
P.S. The b/w photo of the weaver is from The Weaver's Craft by Simpson & Weir, published by Dryad Press. I found it in the 4th edition of the book, dating 1944. That's a few years before I was born so maybe I'm really a reincarnation of the weaver--only the shoes didn't make it through.
