It's a Frame Job

Tapestry is so heavy I decided to go with a frame.  This should work very nicely.  Need a background.  Something neutral?  Ivory to pick out the jellyfish?

Moving Toward the Finishing Line

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.  ;- ]

Drying, drying...

Gold Thread?

I don't think I like the gold thread.  Probably take it out.  Might try another way to add it.

Ok, trying something else.  Better.

Much better.


Small additions.  Filling in the corners.

Woven & Tucked

Woven and tucked.  Still need to fill in here and there where it needs it.

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).

Weaving Around the Bead

Too busy behind the bead.

Added a solid color to show off the jellyfish to good effect.

Weaving and Tucking

Weaving and tucking.  Time for a stretch break.


Action shot.  For size comparison.  Taking a break today (or at least 'til the afternoon); lunch with Tina.

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.

Adding more beads.

Working Out Warp

Need more pins, but I was working on spacing.  Looks good.


Looked thru my beads today.
