...and then there's another right way, and perhaps even another right way! Of course, that's not what we all grew up hearing from our teachers. They said that 'there's a right way to do something and a wrong way to do it.' Rarely did a teacher allow for more than one right way. So when I teach, I often confuse my students, who want to know THE right way to weave their tapestry. I tell them, 'well, you could do it this way, or you could do it this other way...' Not always the simple answer they crave.
I was thinking of that when I reached this area of my cartoon, because I had to choose how I want to weave it. I could use eccentric wefts here, and it would be very organic looking - I love eccentric wefts! Or I could be quite traditional and weave all the way across the area, carrying several dozen wefts bundles back and forth across each of their areas all in one shed change. But I have chosen to just weave each tiny shape at a time, building up around each other as I come to them. Once I made that decision, I could move on with the weaving. Often I make these choices without thinking of them, but I guess I am more cognisant of what I am doing right now, as I am trying to do things in the most efficient way to use my scanty work time well.
New topic: (just thought I'd let you know before you got lost.) One of the things I love about where I live is that we can see the weather coming and going, long before it arrives. We have big sky here in western Colorado. The other evening, as I was driving home from a dinner out with some friends, I watched a storm roll in. The sky was gorgeous, so I grabbed my always-ready camera, and shot some sky through the windshield as I drove (luckily, very light traffic.) Isn't this a wonder? I especially love the area where the light shines through. (I shot about a dozen pictures, but I will spare you, and just show this one.)
