Tapestry Spiral - 2 more yards done

Another couple of yards are done on my tapestry spiral. I am now up to 7 yards with 6 yards to go. It actually doesn't look too much different than when I had 5 yards done. I find it hard to believe there are so many yards on this...

Studying the photo you can see that the woven part has been removed from the front beam since it got so wide. I have it wrapped around an empty Christmas paper tube between a couple of rulers to keep it straight. When I am weaving, I put a metal pole in the tube to get a nice tension. Seems to work quite well.

Just brilliant, Nicki! I loved your conversation with Mondrian -- outstanding.
