Eight days of weaving my 2013 Tapestry Diary!
So far it has been fun weaving my little one inch by two inch rectangles and I have had some time to weave on some of the other projects.
I have also included a more detailed picture after just one week. I'm slowly transitioning to a more blue violet and adding some grays.
Getting back to work on the Mango Hunters has been wonderful. I was a little concerned about picking up on it again and getting into the swing of it but it has been easier than I thought. There are still many challenges ahead on this piece. I probably wouldn't be doing it otherwise, but it seems easier this time. Maybe having done some tapestry weaving everyday for the last 6 months has made the difference!
It was finally time to move the warp around this week. I had been putting it off but everything has its limits and my weaving was getting too close to the shed device so I decided to move the bobbins out of the way and take a picture before the move.
Those little circles are the magnets that I am using to help keep my cartoon in line. I can print these pictures and them have them near the loom to refer to when I can no longer see the whole design. I think it is coming along pretty well . I am excited about making some progress this week and I think Henry is happy to finally have a mango for company.
Here is the last picture taken this morning before starting to weave. I think I will go buy some mangos to have in the studio for inspiration and I can always eat them later.
Before I go back to weaving there is one more thing I want to write about. The newsletter sign up on the right of the blog is only for announcements of classes or shows I will be doing. It is only sent for that purpose. If you want to follow the blog by email there is another place to sign up a little further down on the right side. Sorry for any confusion that might have caused.
