Prospective New Subject


Thinking of doing a chimera next:  Ravenpaw.  Shiny Bauble.


Think I'll try weaving this tapestry sideways.

Also using a plexi loom.  I'll afix the cartoon to the back so it can be lifted to show the tapestry from the obverse.


Wrapped the warp on the plexi.  Cartoon behind plexi (removable?).


Picking colors.

Warp & Woof


I'm considering calling the series Warp & Woof, instead of Woof Faced.



I watched a tutorial http://www.rebeccamezoff.com/blog/2017/10/12/how-to-mount-small-tapestries-so-they-look-great-and-sell-well on mounting on muslin/cotton batting/linen on stretcher boards.  That would work.  I want them all the same color, probably bleached or natural.

These two are approx. 6" sq.  With bead depending, more.  So perhaps 8"x10" stretcher bars; maybe just 8"x8" for the first one.

Bone Bead




I prefer the second treatment.  Tho I might like the tapestry without a bead or tail.

Off the Loom



"Sewing" the last few warps.


Not bad.  Eye needs some work.  Fringe next.


Working on the fringe.  Not as neat as I'd like.

Almost There



Finishing a tapestry is like approaching the speed of light.

Time out for curling.  Now back at it.
