The learning curve to becoming a proficient tapestry weaver is long and steep. Thankfully, also fun. Here’s tiny family tapestry #2, my great-grandfather. I don’t like to share photos of pieces without the final finishing steps, but I won’t have time to take care of them for a couple of weeks. I look at it and shake my head, telling myself, “I’m such a bad tapestry weaver.” Mistakes. Bad technique. Yet somehow the result is pleasing. I’m close to finishing tiny family tapestry #3, an image of my daughter Margaret a la Andy Warhol. Margaret commented, “Are you doing an Andy Warhol because you know I don’t like him?” But I won’t finish that soon either, for a great reason. I will be in ICELAND and NORWAY on the 2011 Vesterheim Textile Study Tour!
