I'm showing you a pic of the completed tapestry and a closeup of the finishing area -- you'll see the difference between the regular weave and the two rows of knotting stitches, one in each direction.
Finally measured! the unfinished size is height 37 and width a shade over 19, inches that is. Once finished, it will be nearer 35 by 19, not quite a golden rectangle (that ratio would be 1:1.6) but close enough, at 1:1.8 to be pleasing to the eye.
Local blogistas, please note that as part of the library's summer program, I plan to take the tapestry off the loom while you can watch, and I will do the finishing. That will be 1.30 p.m. on July 14th, an unusual way to celebrate Bastille Day! Come to the libe and get directions on where to find me.
