Out with the Old! In with the New!

Happy, happy New Year to one and all.  I cut off my 2017 tapestry diary earlier today and here it is! 

The warp for my new one is on the loom shown at the right in the photo.  It's ready for me to begin anew tomorrow on another year-long adventure in tapestry, day by day.

2017 is ending in a few days... and so is my 2017 tapestry diary

I'll be finishing the ninth of the year-long adventures in what I call my tapestry diaries.  My husband happened to catch me and my cat as I finished weaving the day this gray morning (although the sun has now peeked out from behind the clouds).  I'll post the completed and cut off 2017 tapestry diary in a few short days!  Until then... here we are, Tommye Scanlin (in front of the loom) and Raymond Purr (behind the loom)--in case you didn't know who was who:

By the way, I recently wrote a post about my tapestry diary practice for my Tapestry Share blog.  Here's the link to that.

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary has this to say about handwork.

I have the following:

I had hand surgery on December 12 to correct a trigger finger that has been giving me lots of problems when doing handwork.

For the next couple of days, my handwork with tapestry moved along a bit slowly...

The dressing was taken off on December 15 and the incision covered with a large bandaid.  I've had very little pains, a bit of slight bruising around my ring finger, the one the surgery has repaired.

Stitches will come out next week and I'll be back to full-speed ahead with my handwork (I hope!)
