When I finish a weaving, there are always aspects of the work that I like, and those that remain annoying. On this one, I’m not so happy about the skinny leg. My husband looked at the tapestry off the loom and said, “Where’s her other leg?” On the other side of the horse!
Although I unwove darn plenty of this billedvev along the way, there was no way I could take out the whole body in order to make a different leg. It stands (or rides).
But really, it is not unlike the skinny legs of the old Norwegian tapestries. Check out these guys. It’s just traditional, after all.
