I completed the January portion of the 2015 tapestry diary today. Tomorrow the February adventure will begin. I have three drawings completed to select from; I'd like to have a couple more finished before choosing which one I'll start with.
Here's January--day markings in squares or bands surround week-long renderings of oak leaves:
My bins of past wefts fill the center of my studio and I'm hoping to mostly use from these weft bits as I move through the year with the diary:
Since I usually combine more than one yarn in a weft bundle for my tapestry weaving, I almost always have to separate strands for what I'm going to use each day. Most of the weft bundles are also only a yard or so long--in other words, I'm not just picking up and using from these wefts in the bins. I have to select the colors I want from a couple of bundles, separate them and then recombine them. Tedious. Yes. But that's OK. Tedious is synonymous for Tapestry.
