Tread(L)ing Water...

As promised, here is a shot of the "June" tapestry at it's half-way point. I may not be posting much, though I am making myself take at least a five-minute break from weaving every hour. 

I got an email from the Art Center yesterday. This tapestry is to be, with the other completed 7 calender tapestries, in an exhibit there for the month of October. I had believed the center would need the finished pieces by the end of September, as the opening reception is not until October 4th. But they now say all work has to be there by September 18th. That is about the time I was planning to cut this piece from the loom, with the following week to sew slits, block and mount it for the exhibit. 

So now, I need to get it done faster. I'm not really sure that is possible, but I am going to give it my best try. I have informed my husband that cooking and cleaning will wait for awhile. I will be informing friends that our coffee time will need to be put on hold, unless they want to stop by my dirty house on one of my five-minute breaks.

I looked at my calender this morning. I have about 14 days to weave 10 inches. (I'm not counting some days I know I will not be able to weave, due to other commitments.) After that, I still need to do the finish work on this tapestry, and I still have to mount the "October" tapestry. 

My five-minute break is up... back to the loom.
