Struggling On

I couldn't resist the date today - 3/6/18.
I haven't been up to much lately, just trying to get into my tapestry.
So here is a picture of where I am up to - which is a bit concerning because we said that we would have our pieces done by the end of the month. Our meeting is on the 23rd, which isn't really the end of the month!
So I had better get cracking.

Most of it is doing textured weaving over two warps, under two warps, etc. So I does go relatively quickly. And I have decided not to try to have any real detail in the foreground or background, so that saves a lot of unpicking and angst.

The acorn is taking shape. Some of it hasn't worked as I envisaged but I will keep going, I don't think I can make it any better. I just hope it looks like an acorn when I have finished. I may have to say it is an abstract acorn.
