Wonderful Project

I am honored to have the opportunity to make a large series of wall hangings for a local church.  The 8 panels will describe a Cross on a Hill, and will hang over the entrance to the Sanctuary. I will be documenting the progress of this project here.

This photo is of the warp chains, cotton and silk, before dyeing.  These chains are for the left half of the center panels.

Nancy - this is gorgeous! I am definitely interested in watching this come together - I have often wondered how the wonderful artwork in churches happens.
