challenges

December 20, 2017

here’s a quicky post before I’m off to the shops again

hopefully for the final time before the big day!the weaving is quick and easy

well-behaved warp, plain weave, only one shuttle

a nice background for the mini tapestry

a challenge from the teacher

http://www.americantapestryalliance.org/tapestry/h-the-woven-word-images

 the choices people make and why they choose what to weave fascinates me

(it’s the psychiatric nurse in me – human nature at work)

so why did I choose “hearth”

it represents home and includes 5 extra words

he, hear, heart, earth and art – plus it ends in “H” as well

the “R” was a challenge to weave

a good part of my gift shopping is done in the book store

and I generally come home with one for moi!

today is cold and sunny

but yesterday we had torrential rain – everyone else had snow

my old umbrella gave up and refused to stay open

so I bought a new one – advertising my favorite book store

posting a blog isn’t always as quick as you think it is going to be!

    Your tapestries are looking so appealing–I love your reasoning behind choosing “hearth.” My most recent blog post disappeared into the ether before I could post it . . . so, no, it isn’t as quick as I would’ve thought!

      Kerry – there must be an amazing amount of “stuff” floating around in the ether! I would like to include more words/language in my work but it is not easy in tapestry.
