September's tapestry diary is complete

... at least, the weaving of the 30 days is done.  I've still got the end finishing to do and mounting of this one and the others for an exhibit.  I'm not sure how October will progress just yet but I'll have to be ready to begin by tomorrow!

My choice to do each month as a separate tapestry this year (2009 and 2010 were done as whole pieces) has proven both convenient and challenging.  Convenience comes from being able to take the frame loom with me when I'm traveling; challenges come from having each month as a separate design entity.

I've continued with the approach to this process that I began with the month of May in 2008, setting up "rules" for myself to follow.  I've used the toss of a die to determine the color of the background, shape, and color of the shape for four consecutive months now.  I'm not sure if I'll do it again next month or not.  But I'll know 24 hours from now when I set up my rules to follow for October!

So... here's September, 2011:
