"March" finally ends on the summer solstice!
Weaving all day, for many days, at a loom can obviously mess your internal calendar up!
I cut the "March" tapestry off tonight at about 8:30. The photo above shows the weaving completed, including the upper hem, ready to cut off. I wound the warp back up a bit to try to get a photo of the complete tapestry before I cut off, which is seen below. The colors are not exactly true, as the shot was taken at night under artificial light. I will take better photos when the slits are sewn and it is mounted.
But, "TAA_DAA!" It is completed.... except for finishing it, of course. Well. Close counts. Right?
My husband's comment about this tapestry, which is of crocus and iris, is that it looks 'old fashioned.' Not sure what that means....
The "January" tapestry will be in the ATB8 exhibit. "February" currently hangs on my studio wall. "September" is in the Fiber Celebrated 2010 exhibit, and now "March" is at least woven. Four Calendar tapestries down, eight to go! "October" is the next one that will be woven.
