I finished the "September" tapestry this afternoon and have cut it off! I didn't have a cutting off party, as I really just have too much else going on right now, so I 'partied' and cut it off by myself. Above is a photo of it still on the loom, but with hem woven, ready to cut off. After I weave the hem, I cut every other pair of warps across, tying them close to the fell line as I go. You can see the ones already cut hanging down in front of the tapestry in the photo below.
Then, with the weft secured by the cut and tied warps, I can cut the rest off the loom, unwind the tapestry, and untie the warps from the front beam. Below is the finished tapestry, lying face down on my dining room table to 'rest' before I tie off the rest of the warp ends, trim warp and the weft threads hanging out the back down to about an inch long, sew all slits longer than 1/4 inch, block and mount it. Then I'll take some good photos and will post one here!
