This one is completed... almost



I've just finished weaving the last of this tapestry!  I still have the half-hitches to put in at the end before I unroll and cut it off.  But I'll do that tomorrow.  Here's how it looks right now:


Here's how the studio looks... pretty much a wreck at this point although I've wound up the trailing ends of the yarn cones so they're not all over the floor as they were a short while ago.


The cartoon went through some changes as I progressed, especially in the upper left part.  Moral of the story?  Have a more completely realized cartoon before beginning?  Hmmm... don't seem to ever be able to do that and am usually ready to adjust as I move along once I see what's actually happening in the tapestry.


I'm eager to see it unrolled.  Tomorrow will tell the tale, I guess.

The moral to the story is Be Flexible. Oh right, you are!

I love the tapestry, and I'm impressed with how quickly you got it done. I'm inspired, maybe my new big tapestry won't take me years to weave after all.

I can hardly wait to see it. I still love the res lines! Congratulations on getting it done so quickly. I need to weave, but my life is up-ended right now, so will just enjoy your work for a time.

This is so beautiful. I can't wait to see it off the roll.
