Finish and beginning ...

A Happy New Year to you all!

I finished weaving my tapestry in 2010
but finishing the sewing up and the backing
took a while.
By now, the tapestry is hanging on my wall!
It is nice to start the new year
with something finished!

It measures 96 cm wide x 67 cm high - 37 3/4" x 26 1/2"

This photo is a little closer up. (if you click on the pictures you will get an enlargement)

I hope you will like it!

What a beautiful picture.

And I am always pleased to get measurements in inches - centimetres mean nothing to me! *Smile*

Happy New Year

Congratulations on the completion of your Tapestry!
What a beautiful way to start the New Year!
I really like this tapestry, it is so happy in the atmosphere it embues. I really like the textured elements of the clouds and rocks and the little wave and I just love the boat. I think you've done a brilliant job. :-)
I has been lovely being able to watch it come together with all your progress photos.

I wish you all the best of success with your creative plans for the coming year.
Happy New Year!!
