And she's off!

The cutting off of the Fall tapestry was a nice event. And it's great to have it done... kinda. The 'what-now-blues' always hit me after I complete something that has so consumed my life for such a great length of time. Of course, 'now' I do have plenty to do, as I've not decorated or shopped or even thought of the upcoming holidays at all yet. So, that will be a good diversion from the now empty loom.

I had a dozen or more students and friends here for the cutting off. I forgot to set my camera to flash, so my pictures didn't turn out very well. But, after everyone left, I hung the tapestry up from a velcro hanger, and got a pretty decent shot of it. Here it is, fresh off the loom, so not blocked or finished yet:

Oh, lovely!

Wonderful colors, I so like the border dsigns, and the leaves, and the colors of her dress and shawl, and, and, and!
