So Close



So close.  Need to tuck in the ends so I can see the whole thing.



Tucking, tucking.

***

Giving some thought to the weight of the tapestry ~ specifically the glass bead.  It'll need supplementary support from the back.  Maybe even tack the whole tapestry to a backing (i.e., tack it in rows on the back).

Getting There...



So close. Then I decide if I want to add any more beads (to the swish at the bottom).

Painting with Thread



Not sure I like the sea foam and spray.  I'll think about that.

It can get messy.  Taking a break.


One of Signy's less helpful days.

Beads on Loom


Too many sea creature beads ~ needs thinning out.

That's better.  Also focal bead added.

Undersea Denizens Tapestry


Been a while.  Guess I haven't been thinking tapestry.  Got a great bead from Cynthia Konow (Thea in SCA) and I'm designing a tapestry for it.



Cynthia's jellyfish blown glass bead:



Silvery sea creature charms, iridescent glass beads, sea foam beads, moon button, star beads.

Purples, blues, greens.
