That is the question that has eaten up most of my time today. In case this is ever read by anyone, this is day one, first post, first ever blog... I am a weaver. I am not yet a tapestry weaver, or a rug weaver. I can weave, so I can weave both rugs and tapestries, but I am more like someone, who knowing their letters, can write their name. So, this is the beginning of the Grand Plan! To live daily as a tapestry and rug weaver and see where I end up.
The heart is on my 22" Mirrix tapestry loom. It is a small little heart, taken from the design on page 54 of "Tapestry Weaving" by Kirsten Glasbrook. The border is brown, and the heart is in shades of light blue. I wanted to practice the shape, the curve of the heart (I'm weaving it sideways).
To end this...do I break it, or halve it? Jagged lines across...or a smooth curve....either way I only have to weave 1/2 of the heart.
I have a photo of a greyhound head that I really want to weave. 8 weeks ago I lost my beloved greyhound, Jack, to a mind-numbingly sudden cancer. I can't weave him yet. But, I can weave another greyhound and practice.
Practice. That is what I will write about here. I love photographs so I will include as many as I can when I can.
