A You Tube first (for me!)

Ok... going to try to add a You Tube video here... 


This is my first attempt at You Tube and it shows, I know.  Anyway, here I am weaving on part of the large stones tapestry.  I propped up my iPhone beside me and turned the video on, hence the poor quality of the image!  But I wanted to give it a try to see if I could do it.  More later, perhaps, of better quality and with more informative content.

It was actually quite hypnotic to watch, Tommye! I was amused to realize I could sit and watch you weave for hours; it entranced me!

Sue said...

What Kathy said. I was hypnotized. I. Foresee teaching videos in your future and what a wonderful addition they will be to the youtube collection

Its very interesting seeing other weavers, weave, I only do small scale and not on an upright loom, this was fascinating, thank you.

Wonderful Tommye! I loved watching you pass your bobbins so gracefully and quickly! Super !

Alice said...

A great film debut. I like the sound of your beater.

Yay!!! Go Tommye! I love seeing you weave. I weave so differently that this is just fascinating for me to see. I always wonder what is faster. Building up shapes like you and all bobbin weavers do or weaving straight across with the floor loom beater. I suspect you win... or that it depends on what the subject matter is. Anyway, hooray on the YouTube video! I hope you make more!

Congratulations on the video Tommye! It was fun to watch and I'll be looking for the next one.

It is mesmerizing to watch--like a dance--very cool!

Thank you for posting this. As someone new to tapestry, it is so helpful to actually see how you weave your gorgeous pieces.

Thank you, All of You, who've commented about this video. I do appreciate your taking a look and giving feedback. More in the future, perhaps??
