Well. I've gone several weeks now since I finished the "Wooster" tapestry. I had decided that I have too many other things to do, and no exhibit deadlines ahead, so I would take a bit of a break from the loom. But this photo that I took a few weeks ago keeps hollering at me that it needs to be a small-ish tapestry. So, this morning I am going to enlarge it to a cartoon, then will tie the leftover warp back on to the front beam, and will work on this tapestry at a 'reasonable, non-deadline' pace. Wonder what THAT will be like?
This tapestry will be about 18"x18". I think it will be called "February," and it may be the first in a series of similarly sized pieces in a months-of-the-year series. I like working in series, but 12 of them? We'll see. It will need to be woven sideways, I'm thinking.
This photo SO captured how I felt for the whole month of February this year.
