Tapestry Update

My days have been filled with receptions, events, family and volunteering. The tapestry is still progressing, here is proof!  It will be finished within a couple of weeks. And I will begin the process again. I always encounter some resistance from myself at the beginning and the end of any project. I don't really want to end my ongoing involvement with this piece of weaving. I will miss it. 

The flip side of the coin is the pressure I will feel when I first encounter a big empty warp. Will I be brave enough to just pick up some yarn and weave, as I did with this one. This one needs a better name. I think I might call it Shift.  I see seismic shifts throughout the piece, especially at the beginning. I began to weave it right after selling my ten year old business. It must somehow reflect the personal shift in my life. The glowing bowl? Waiting to be filled? An offering? Is Shift and Gift too corny? 

I have two classes on the books this week - Color Confidence on Thursday, November 21 from 5 to 8 p.m. It is not too late to sign up - call Woven Art , 517-203-4467. You will learn some trade tricks to make exciting (or soothing!) color choices. 
The other class in on Sunday - A Brioche moebius cowl class. First you will learn a special cast on, then you will learn how to knit two color Brioche in the round. The result is a smooshy, bulky, long cowl scarf. Fast to execute, perfect for giving. Again, at Woven Art, Sunday November 24.
