weaving on one and start on another
I've finished warping and
started weaving the first
In the meantime,
my new printer
has broken down (tried everything)
and I decided to install my old printer.
Lucky the leads were long enough
and there was one power outlet left!
Here's the result:
Lots of papers which will be my new cartoon.
I use a poster program which prints the design life size on to however many A4 papers are needed, and then I cut (printed guide lines ) and sticky tape them all together. I usually use masking tape, as this lasts much better than the clear sticky tape. (Beware of the cheap version masking tape though, by the time you get back, all the tape will have started to peel off).
Back to tapestry weaving soon, unless the weather gets too hot again. The warp is ready and I have woven the starter strip. I'm one of those weavers who weave a base strip and a strip at the end of the tapestry to turn over and hem after weaving is finished.
