|still on the loom, needs to be rotated when I eventually hitch off.|
I found this tapestry much quicker than previous ones for several reasons:
- I used a larger warp (seine twine 18)
- the weft was thicker, 6 strands of Tapestry Workshop (now known as the Australian Tapestry Workshop) yarns
- I did not follow a strict cartoon, I used my inspiration photo as a guide and did approximations
- because of the last point, I did much less unpicking, I could let things go even when they were not quite how I had envisaged them.
I am considering using this image again, or one similar, in the (not immediate) future as I would like to try for some different effects, more 3 dimensional where the sap sticks out from the tree, but did not feel confident enough in my weaving to be trying that yet.
