I'm back from the wonderful two weeks at the Lillian E. Smith Center and getting reacquainted with what I was working on as I left. I've woven a few inches today above the area I photographed yesterday afternoon before leaving the studio. I'm hoping to have this piece finished before too many weeks go by and possibly move on to one of the others from this series based on earlier batiks.
I'm also working each day on finishing details for the assorted tapestry diary pieces. Using lots of bits and pieces of wefts is a great way to recycle from bobbins... but it leaves hundreds (maybe thousands) of ends to be attended to. I'm preparing the tapestry diary pieces for exhibit and don't want to have to do them all at once because finishing steps are necessary... but tedious... and, yes... even boring!
