The tapestry continues..

So far so good.  I'm using a giant needle to do the weaving -- heading it in eye first, to avoid snags. The frame of this loom is thick enough that it's easy to slide the needle through one way, and not too tricky to pick up the threads on the way back.  I really prefer this method to butterflies or bobbins and using sticks and strings to manipulate the warp.You can probably see dots on the warp higher up to indicate where the sun will be woven in.  click on pic to see better.

Weaving like this fascinates me. When I was a little girl our neighbour had a floor loom and sometimes she would let me 'help' her on it.
