It was only 41 yesterday, but today it’s sunny, and flowers are popping up all over the yard.
I love these Scilla.
I was delighted to find them in the backyard, and knew them from the Flower Fairies book I had when I was a kid.
Why am I posting about old tapestries? Because I’m not making much progress on the new ones.
I have not been working in the studio much recently.
Here is a photo of the “large” tapestry I started a while ago.
(“Large,” because at 24” wide it’s about the same size as one of Kathy Spoering’s “small” tapestries!)
It’s the latest in my Chaos series, and will have faint text around the border. The text will say “On the edge of chaos on the edge of chaos on the edge.”
Now I have 3 Chaos tapestries started on 3 different looms.
Enough! I need to start finishing them. I am setting aside Wednesday nights for weaving, now that the library is going to be closed that night. The new mayor does not seem to like us, and has cut our budget radically. Besides cutting our hours, we’ve had to give up buying any books, movies or music Cd’s. I felt terrible on Friday when I had to tell a patron that we did not have the book she was looking for, and that we would not be getting it. The silver lining is that I now have 4 extra free hours a week. Rather than fritter them away, I am marking a studio date on my calendar. Now I hope to be able to report regular progress.
