Almost there - last update!
Here we are, the second tree is nearly finished and the finish line is clearly in view.
All that remains to be done
(uhm, still quite a lot actually :-)
- is "greenery".
You may notice that, apart from a dividing line between tree leaves and greenery, there are no markings for outlines. I prefer to "Play" and weave the greenery as it comes, as I feel it, as I like it...
I think it's fun!
I wove the loose bark with bulky hand spun wool, natural colour. I nearly wished that I had not spun the wool so well, to get more bumps...:-)
underneath are the new flowers, which finish up the middle of the tapestry (it's easier to remember the tapestry is woven sidewise this time, since we all know trees grow upwards :-)
The middle of the tree, and the end of the flowers underneath. All the rest of the tree is woven with hand spun slk. I wanted to show off the beautiful sheen of the smooth new bark.
Well, I hope to see you before end of October with the pictures of the finished tapestry ...
I am steadfastly ignoring weeds for now, but go to check out the strawberry pots. So delicious, can't miss that!
Enjoy spring! (or Fall with those beautiful colours!)
Happy weaving and/or working at whatever is important to you!
