Sawblade weavings, both sides of the loom

I completed two more sections of the planet piece, and thought you might like to see how they were set up, one on either side of the sawblade, using the same warping for both.  Here's the blade with the other side showing in the mirror

and here's the completed second side, still attached to the loom. Spanish merino roving is that cloudy area, and there's llama yarn as well as other threads.

and here are the two pieces, now released from the loom, warp ends knotted off. I love the wildness of the warp ends, and want to preserve that if I can

 At this point I'm wondering if they are freestanding or should be included in the big tapestry.  I'll try out the idea and see.  I like the freestanding notion, though.

Technical note: if you are following this blog using Google Friend Connect but not a Google account, you may find it vanishes on Monday.  Google has had an idea, sigh, about cutting back on GFC..  

Anyway, if you don't want to find your blog feed's gone missing, and you are not on a Google account, you can sign up via Bloglovin, see right, which I don't think will be affected, or you can request to be on my direct mailing list.  If you're already doing either of those things, no worries. 

There are probably other workarounds, but these are the fastest and simplest I can think of.
