Just finished the April tapestry diary

I haven't cut off the weaving because there's still several inches of warp remaining at the top and I'll use it in some way.  I've edited to show the whole piece... each day seems teeny when you see it as one piece.  The entry third from the top shows the tornado, a small representation of the terrible ones that pushed through the Southern states a few days ago.  So much destruction and so many lives lost.  It's a terrible time for thousands of people.

May's tapestry diary will be on a smaller frame loom so I can take it with me when I travel for a few activities during the month.  One of the adventures will be to take a workshop with Archie Brennan and Susan Martin Maffei.  I'm quite looking forward to it; I've studied with Archie and Susan many times and always gain so much inspiration and knowledge from them both.  Tapestry Weavers South is sponsoring the workshop and it will be held at the same location that Pat Williams & I taught our workshop in October--Camp Mikell near Toccoa, Georgia.  The location was beautiful in the fall and I'm looking forward to seeing the surroundings in the springtime.

Fiddleheads have now become young ferns at the creek house.  I saw trillium and flame azaleas there the other day.  Spring holds more than horrific weather, thank God!
