Back at it. I expect I'll get a lot of weaving done while Bill is in Trinidad this week.
Adding the gold.
On the homefront, Bill missed his flight to Trinidad and is now rerouted thru New Jersey. He'll be getting in a couple hours later.
I like this cat better.

Better lighting, but still not true color. It's very hard to get blues and greens to both read true at the same time. This comes pretty close.
I want to add my signature chop, possibly embroidered on the background cloth. But nothing I have to rush in to.
I can move along not to my tapestry commission for Lee Wygand in the SCA.

Tacked the tapestry to the stabilizer, cut it down, tucked and glued misc. ends. Waiting for it to dry.
Next, work on frame. Cut foam core board to right size, add batting and background material. Screw in eyelets and attach wire. Frame.
Then tack tapestry to the front.

Time to wet and set the tapestry. Maybe add a few more passes, but I don't think it needs much.
After it's w&s I'll attach a non-fusible stabilizer to the back. I expect the blown glass bead to be pretty heavy. Also I want to run another sturdy yarn or multiple yarns thru the bead and around to the back for extra strength.
Then it'll be time to figure out how I'll mount or hang it.
Wet and setting. Looks like a night scene. ;- ]

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