Life is what happens...
We will be leaving home in the morning for about a week on an unexpected family trip. As I have not been getting the duck tapestry done as quickly as I'd hoped, and as the deadline to get it to the exhibit is coming up very soon, and also as we're really not sure how long we'll need to be gone, I have realized I may need to accept the possibility that I may not get the tapestry done in time. I may need to pull it from the exhibit. I had thought about packing it up and taking it along, as I am sure there will be quite a bit of time there when I will want busy hands. But I don't think I could take the pipe loom in my carry-on, and, frankly, I'm a bit concerned about how it would be treated even in a checked bag. So I'll probably just take some knitting and a book. And, of course, my sketchbook.
The photo above is a shot I just took of the corner of my desk. I liked the way the light was hitting it. I have been wanting to paint some interiors. Maybe, when I can get to it, I will paint it.
I'll let you know when we are back, and when I have some progress to report on the duck. Perhaps, if I weave like a fiend when I get home, I may get it done in the nick of time even yet!
