All Tucked

All tucked and awaiting mounting.  I've ordered some hardwood doweling to see how that looks.  Or I could attach it to cloth and frame it as I have previous mini-tapestries.

Ready to Set

Pinned all around the sides so I can spray it with water to set.  Planet button (which is wood) will be permanently attached when the tapestry's dry.
And now it's wet.

I've ordered some hardwood dowels to play with for mounting.

Almost Done

Lucy passed away early this morning.  The tapestry is almost done. 

Basically just finishing to do.  Maybe a little weaving here and there.

An amalgam of our styles ~ Lucy's spacescapes with my tapestry technique.  The luna moth is mine.

Now with More Button

Found a button I like for the planet.  Decided not to fight with the yarn.  Weaving a circle is beyond frustrating.  I like this better anyway.

Back to Weaving

Another hour or so.  Stretch break.

Off to Joann's to look at buttons.  I don't want to weave the planet.

Back to Weaving

Weavity-weave.  Stretch break, then back at it again.

Buttons and Beads

So I went to Joann's and looked at buttons and beads.  Found some interesting moons and planets, and some shells that could easily make up a moth.

No guarantee the shells would configure that neatly of course.  Especially if they're strung on the warp.

Moth and planet button.

Another planet button with a woven moth.  Or of course woven moth and planet.  I could get more color in that way.

Thinking I may go ahead as I planned, then make a variation next using buttons, etc.

More Weave ~ Luna Luce

Got some weaving done yesterday at the Laurels' meeting.  Handwork is a popular pastime with that crowd.  ;- ]

Took a pic out in the sun and the detail shows up a little better in the black if you blast it out.

Don't know why I weave with black so much.  ;- j

Time for a lunch break.

Luna Weave

Started weaving today.  Best to get the edges done early, tho I'm holding off weaving the bottom until I decide if I'm adding any more beads.

Maybe four hours?  I lose track of the time when I'm weaving.

Black doesn't show up well in a pic, but I wanted to give an idea of the varied textures.

Taking a stretch break.  But I know I'm in the compulsive stage now, so I'll be back to it again shortly.

Luna Loom

Loom warped up with cartoon.  Now to pick some colors.

But first, some beads.  Stars in space and spots on the luna moth.

Luna Luce

Another way.  This one incorporating the spacescape-style of Lucy Seaman with the moth.

Same image with a 10° turn to the right.

Luna Moth

Luna sketches.

Like the rainbow idea.  Some different arrangement.

Planning Stages ~ Mini-Tapestry

I've got the theme for a mini-tapestry.  Now I'm googling input.  I narrowed it down from butterflies and moths to luna moths and now I'm studying them.  I have a flowing, stylized image in mind and I'm closing in on it. 

Sketches and cartoon to follow.  8-]
