I have been weaving up a storm recently with little time to blog. It has been an extremely satisfying month.
I have woven three tapestries in a series called Deja Vu and come up with two more ideas for pieces in the series. As soon as they are 'framed' I will show some photos.
I have made great progress on my mosaic for our Guild challenge. I still have not yet started the weaving for the hat band...but I reserved September for that part...oh my...it is already September...better start working on that too!
At the next meeting of the Southern California Handweavers Guild I am giving a quick demonstration of the pulled tapestry technique. I decided to show how to make a frame for a picture. It should be an easy piece to pull in front of everyone.
Long ago I bought five small canvases at Blicks...each canvas is 2 inches square. They have been sitting by my desk waiting for inspiration. Well inspiration hit and I am now feverishly making tapestry frames for each one and will then paint something which will go with the frame. The reverse of most people's method.
Here is my first attempt - -
The painting isn't done yet. That is simply magic marker to give me an idea what the a painting would look like in the frame. I will do the final one in acrylics. I think it looks pretty neat. A bit of finishing plus a painting and life will be good.
