Happy New Year--Tapestry Diary for 2010 is DONE!

End of the year... half-hitches in place at the top.

Unrolled from the breast beam... longer than I expected!

Cutting it off at last...

... and laying it out on the floor to see it for the first time.

More about it later...

... and now, later... to add these additional photos from yesterday:

Snipping ends before pulling out the posterboard spacer strips.

Strips are out... don't have a long enough table to lay it out on.

Empty warps for my times away.  I still have finishing work to do to tidy it up.  That will take some time to do... but doesn't matter, does it... it took a year to weave so I shouldn't complain about the completion process, I guess!

Congratulations on your completed diary! It will always remind you of your trip and what you accomplished while you were away. Glad you are back!

I look forward to seeing how you will hang this. It looks so cheery and colorful - looks like it was a good year! Happy 2011!

Happy New Year..looking forward to your finishing it to hang. It is lovely and I admire your tenacity when where it was.

I can't wait to see the final product. Are you going to leave the white spacers in or take them out? I have enjoyed reading about your adventures this year!

Thanks for all comments... Rebecca, I've taken out the spacers now so there are just empty warps where once there was while.
I'll post the whole piece eventually... got lots more work to do on it to finish it off!

I love this idea - and the result is beautiful. I'll be interested in following your 2011 weaving.

Happy Weaving!

Lovely to see it finished Tommye - and to catch a glimpse of your workspace! Missing you. LouLou

LOL, I don't know where the 'when where it was' comment came from. Guess wine and comments should be mutually exclusive. Seriously, I really admire the work you do and the discipline it takes to do it.
