the book pages are finished

and now to stitch the covers – I’m procrastinating!

it has been an interesting journey

the final page

I made a paper pattern book to work out ideas

I’ve had to stretch my creative brain

challenging myself is a reason for continuing to work on a monthly project

and it is good to have a head start on next year

with a new and exciting challenge

4×4″ – the second tiny tapestry

I can’t imagine how long it would take me to weave something larger

the next one started – the curves were definitely a struggle

and a brilliant weaver’s idea?

as the tapestries are finished I plan to mount them on fabric covered frames

so why not weave the fabric?

a beautiful – if not a very expensive – 2 ply hemp

hope to get it on the loom to weave in brief snatches during the holidays

    I love that t.s. eliot quote. You inspire me to challenge myself more, Jean. I get in happy ruts, making things that are comfortable and pretty mindless. I should do more . . .

      Kerry – I’ve been weaving for so long I need challenges to keep me going, You have done remarkable work in a few short years, as long as it makes you happy there is no need for “shoulds” …

      Susan – no time like the present! All my pages were handwoven which is where the planning process started. All the extra yarn, fabric and inclusions have made it much thicker than I was expecting thus the hesitation when it comes to stitching the covers.
