My goal for today was to complete weaving this second trout (you can see the very subtle 'first trout' to the the right and below this one.) I have all but the top of the tail woven, though I need to also weave the water around the fish.
These fish, and one more, are a part of the "June" calendar tapestry that is on my loom now. I have less than 5 of 18 inches woven, and must have it completed, to be exhibited in October. Yikes!
But, for today I am happy to have the fish woven. I have spent the past several days not quite on top of my form. Sick, in fact. But today, I am finally ready to be back at work.
With the fish woven (mostly) I need to quit and run some much-neglected errands, and then fix a real dinner, as my poor husband has been fending for himself for awhile. Inspired by my trout, I'm thinking of some good tuna patties for dinner, since we have no trout in the freezer at present. And some local sweet corn and tomatoes from the garden. It's good to be hungry again!
Oh, Mr. Trout, you have inspired me to weave.... and to cook and to eat!
Tomorrow and at least one more day after that, I'll just be weaving water. But then I will weave the last trout. Wonder what I'll want for dinner that night? I'll keep you posted.
