Annoying Fake Tapestry

This is a non-weaving week, as I am visiting beautiful granddaughter Coralie in Fort Kent, near the Canadian border.  Packing took precedence over weaving before I left, so my nearly-completed warp with two fleece/fur experiments will have to wait until I return.  One piece incorporates fabric strips with mink and other fur strips.  As a practical outcome, it will become a deliciously soft pillow.  Searching through my fabric stash for suitable backing, I found a scrap of “tapestry” from an antique shop. The pretentious scene is pretty much unrelated to real life in the modern world.  I couldn’t use it in an un-ironic way, so I embellished it with some possible thoughts on the part of the people.
