Here's the reality: this is what it looks like while I'm working on it.
As you can see I have MANY wefts, and in fact, something about the combination of using bobbins and the little shelf on this loom seems to encourage terrible tangling.
I made a lot of progress yesterday, but today, none at all, since I was driving to Cape Cod to see my Mom at the nursing home. We had fun looking at photos of her new great grand-daughter, Ruby, on Facebook.
I have finished the hardest parts of this tapestry and the rest should be relatively easy, so hopefully I can finish up in a few days.
