I haven't done much tapestry at all this year, except for the small piece I did in France.
|Here it is, still on the loom: my finishing off leaves much to be desired, so I am not showing that one.|
It is approximately 16cm x 10 cm.

I am currently studying Experimental Textiles and am focusing more on machine free motion embroidery and the possibility of designing an art quilt.
I need to decide what direction I want to go although I suppose it isn't necessary to be exclusive about one technique or another. However, to do a thing well, it is necessary to devote time and effort and not be distracted by trying to do too many things at once.
I enjoyed the tapestry weaving last year and want to do more but I am missing the focus provided by assignments. Luckily, it looks like a group of us students and ex-students will be able to meet on a monthly basis to do weaving. So now I had better get organised so that I have something to take with me. More about this later, we won't be starting for about another 6 weeks.
