Tapestry Ocean, and Goldwork on printed, dyed linen

Today a completed work, a small tapestry, made from yarn I spun and dyed then wove, with a hanging dowel painted to look like metal. I wove this on a cardboard loom.





and a work in progress, goldwork on printed and dyed linen.  I think beading will get in here, too.




Next Thursday's artist in residence session will feature beading and possibly embroidery on lace.  I have to find beaded pieces to show, though the more spectacular ones are now in collections, and not available to me right now. And I have to paw through my books to find something on beading.  Not hard to find raw materials for beading! just a little tricky to transport without creating bead soup.

Hard to believe how fast these nine sessions are rushing by. Week Six now!

I thumbed through an old book about weaving at the library yesterday and thought of you. I thought, "I bet Boud knows all about this stuff!"

Aren't you nice! I know a bit, but not the classical official loom related stuff -- too deliberative and linear and literal for my taste. I do love browsing about that kind of weaving though.

so good to not only weave his piece but to have spun and dyes the wool too is such an achievement and a lovely hanging too

I love your tapestry. It looks like a cloudy new moon over a mountain top.

It has to give you such a great feeling of satisfaction to know that you have had a hand in the creation of every element that went into this.
