The Dog Days of Summer...
I finished weaving the upper hem of the August tapestry last night at about 10:00. It clearly wasn't a good time to take pictures, though I took the one above anyway. I unrolled the tapestry a bit from the lower beam this morning, and took a few photos that show almost all of the tapestry. I will cut it off the loom this morning, then will let it relax a few days before I start the finishing process. I need to get it finished fairly rapidly, as there are a couple of exhibits that I may enter, and I'll need this one to enter. With exhibits taking only work from the past two years, I am having trouble doing as many exhibits as I used to do, simply because I can't produce as much as I used to produce.
Anyway, here it is... "August" of the Calendar Series, or "The Dog Days of Summer." When I get the finishing process done, and some good photos taken, it will be posted either here or on my website.
