I was also interviewed and photographed for the In the Studio feature of Quilter Companion. That was an incentive to actually tidy the studio, and to put some artwork up on the walls that have been bare for a while, since we had some renovations done.

It was great to see the pictures (obviously taken with a wide-angle lens!) and remember those brief few days when the studio was tidy.
It is not tidy at the moment, I have lots of my tapestry paraphernalia lying around. I started an image a while ago but it just isn't working. So, a couple of days ago, I warped up the slightly smaller loom and started again.

Hopefully I have learnt from the mistakes of the previous piece and I won't make the same errors - or any.
As my friend has just reminded me, a successful piece depends on good preparation. I don't think I did that properly and now I am sorry.
Still, the new piece is coming along and I am putting in quite a few hours every day, improving my weaving. I don't do weaving all that often, so it is good to be being consistently sitting down and doing it.

But I do have a couple of ideas for art quilts that are still rattling around in my head - I really want to get to them. Must have some discipline and get the weaving done first.
