Kathy, what a beautiful, elegant tapestry! I love a back of it too! It could be a beautiful installation, great on both sides...

I really love this tapestry. The small areas of color are particularly appealing. Great job, Kathy.
How many in your year of tapestries now??

Wow Kathy, This is just beautiful! I have never told you that I spied your work when I first started taking tapestry with Tommye. When I realized it was your work that I loved (after having found it), I was thrilled to have you visit my site. I especially love your use of old photographs, I have an affinity for them too. Have you ever seen Susan Carlson's art quilts? She has a series called Farmer's Market that remind me of your work.

I'm awestruck! It's wonderful! It conjures up so many feelings that I have about winter. Brava!

This is the third of the Calendar pieces. I've done January, February, and September. Only 9 to go!

Thanks, Lauren, for pointing Susan Carlson's work out to me. I'd never seen it before, and it's wonderful!

I agree it's beautiful and elegant - and you were able to schedule time despite Booker! What an accomplishment! Looking forward to seeing the next installment.

Exquisite! I love the way it is almost black and white, but not quite, with those little touches of rust red (leftover oak leaves?) and the bit of blue sky.
