Here she is: O'Brien! She is woven, blocked, lined, and tagged.... everything but wrapped and packed and shipped, which I will do tomorrow. She will then fly her way on her little woven chicken wings to the ATA small tapestry exhibit in Minneapolis, Wisconsin, where I am sure she will be admired by many for the lovely chick she is!
As this is a small tapestry exhibit, with a maximum size limit of 10x10 inches, O'Brien is just 8 inches wide by 10 inches tall. About life sized, actually. I loved weaving all the little bits of color in her feathers! Tiny, tiny threads made up each bit. Many tiny, tiny threads! She was woven sideways, as I just don't think she could have been woven from the bottom up! Lovely fun I have had with Miss O'Brien in our time together. She'll be gone quite awhile, and I will miss her stern eye on me as I weave.
And now, I must get back to the December tapestry on the big loom.
