Pressed duck...



Well, not pressed, yet, but soon to be! I finished the weaving of the duck, and had my own private cutting off this evening, foregoing even watching the Olympics in my enthusiasm to finish. So tomorrow I'll sew up all the slits and block it. (My blocking process can be seen here, so I won't bore you with that again.) Then I'll take a decent (as in 'in the daylight') photo and will post it here. By the way, this photo makes it look like I had serious draw-in problems at the top, but it's just the photo perspective and the way the piece is lying on the back warp, after being cut from the front. I am now off to relax for what is left of the evening. ¡Pato, pato, final!

I can't wait to see the finished piece! Have been watching sandhill cranes and various water fowl this winter down in NM (I'm sure they're headed up your way as some fly over western CO, no?)... your duck is beautiful. How many ends per inch did you weave her at?

beautiful and I love the way the water has such good motion. How satisfying to have it off the loom!
