tapestry! Isn't that how it goes? Well, I have just finished the upper border, except for the hem, which will weave off in a flash tomorrow, right before I clean the studio. I'm convinced that the tradition of having a cutting off was started so that tapestry studios were cleaned up after a tapestry was completed. It's a mess... Cast aside butterflies flying all over the place!
I looked at the upper border and my reaction was like Steve Urkel's: "Did I do THAT?"
I felt so horrible while I wove the entire upper border, I could only focus on the tiny spot I was weaving at any given moment. To have thought of the whole thing would have totally overwhelmed me, and I'd have given up and gone to bed. I am happy to report that it snowed last night, and after the clouds broke, so did my migraine! So I have much to be thankful for!
Here's a picture of the whole upper border. I'll post photos of the cutting off after it happens. I'm pretty anxious to see this tapestry. I have yet to see the whole thing myself! I only see the 10 or so inches that aren't wound around the front beam at any one time.
And now... I am going to bake cookies!
