In all it's messiness...

The "January" tapestry is off the loom. I'm sharing it with you in all it's messiness; weft not trimmed, warp not all tied off, slits not sewn, and unblocked. It will look better soon, but for now, it and I shall rest a bit from each other.

The cutting off party was a very selective one. Those who attended enjoyed a light repast of Pupperoni's, dried salmon bits, and a couple of Starbursts left from Halloween.

For the rest of the afternoon, I will clean up under and around the loom. It is frightful in the studio, and I look forward to tackling that mess before I tackle the mess that is the finishing of the tapestry.

This photo looks a bit too dark. I have yet to get a good picture of the thing, but when I have it mounted, I'll get it in some good light and will get a better image.

That tapestry is fabulous! I love the starkness and elegance of the scene... I am glad I stopped by, and will certainly be back.

The tapestry looks wonderful. Light and shadow are things that make my eye and heart sing and this piece captures both very beautifully.
Congratulations on bringing another lovely thing into the world.

Messy or not, it's a beautiful and complex piece. Glad a celebration was had with treats and candy! :-)

It's beautiful! And I understand the difficulty in photographing dark objects - Shadow is a bugaboo in around-the-house light! I have confidence you'll get it though!
