Almost finished

I worked on my tapestry for my final piece this weekend and have hitched off. I have not cut it off the warp as I will take it to our final class for the year to make sure that it is ok. It is based on a picture I took at the front beach at Rye a few years ago.

The colours in the tapestry picture have come out much more orange than it actually is but it gives an indication of the work. I had to take some poetic licence with the colours and with how I interpreted the boats and waves but I am pleased with it overall. There are things wrong with it but, for my first piece, I think it is quite successful.
Now I have to tidy it up, braid the ends and mount it. Then decide what to do with it.

I think it looks great, and I'm looking forward to seeing it displayed.

Thanks Parlance, I have to decide how best to display it, whether to put it in a frame or mount it on a canvas, or try some other way. I will have to do it quickly as it is due in next Monday, so no professional mounting at this stage.
