12-24-13



Close, but no cigar.


I just couldn't finish this before Christmas.  But, all the green areas are woven and I put my weaver's mark in at the left side today.  There's still about 1" to 2" to the top of the design area, all the way across the 60" width, to be woven.  Following that will be about 1 3/4" for hem.


I feel pretty sure I'll be able to finish and cut off before the weekend.  So I'm not too disappointed; after all, December 25 was a self-imposed deadline.

I DO want to have it finished so I can have it photographed when I'm in Asheville in early January to pick up a couple of tapestries from the Tapestry Weavers South exhibit (ending at the Folk Art Center on January 12).  Both of the tapestries have been accepted into another exhibit and I'll need to ship them right off.  Quite a nice Christmas present to learn that the pieces were selected!

Merry, Merry to one and all!
