Here's where I am today--just approaching the 3/4 mark on the tapestry. Slowly, slowly, slowly it grows.
Look at the painting posted at the left side of the blog page to see the progress points. I keep referring to the original to keep myself encouraged about progress even though it seems to be so slow.
Now... the big thank you goes to a very kind fellow participant from the recent Marcel Marois workshop in Rhode Island who sent me this book as a gift:
I've searched unsuccessfully for the book for about twenty years... and the other day, I opened up my mail box to find an unexpected and quite wonderful surprise! THANK YOU, JENNY! I am eternally grateful for your generosity. I've just spent an hour or so with Google translation and find that I will indeed be able to figure out what I need to from the text even through I don't read French. The illustrations are superb and I knew that I'd be able to learn so much from those alone. Hooray!
More from the Rhode Island adventures soon, I promise. It was a remarkable time.
