2012 Tapestry Diary is nearing the end





It's hard to believe that there are only 21 days remaining in the year of 2012!  That means only twenty-one more days of daily entries into my tapestry diary are left to do, as well.

This year's diary contains date numbering (most done with soumak) and for the most part echoes the weather conditions and/or time of day when I've done the weaving.  Often there's another bit of something reminiscent of what I've seen on a morning walk or other small symbolic shape that will remind me of something about the day when I look at it later.  Other than width (about 12") it's going to be quite different than the other full year tapestry diaries, those for 2009 and 2010.

So... where I am today, a rainy and foggy day here in Georgia:


I'm weaving this on the Tissart loom that's here at my home studio.  



I'm using yarns from my stash here at home but much of the weft is from past tapestries... see the scraps here:


And when I'm working at home I have a good helper--although he often relaxes a bit if the job gets hard... as he's doing here:


OK!  Day's done here at the house, now to put on a coat, pick up an umbrella and walk over to my real work at the studio.
