I wove “Medieval Mash-Up with Margaret” to bring to the Norwegian tapestry workshop I planned to give in Denver in late March. (Insert sad face) As the coronavirus crisis unfolded, I set aside the final finishing and hemming of the billedvev for other projects, until today. This is the first photo of the completed piece.
I used a good camera, but the image is still lacking; the light greens are not as vibrant as they should be. Amazingly, it came out perfectly squared, so the slightly dipping top edge is the fault of the photographer.
The piece was documented well along the way in the following posts:
Medieval Mash-Up #1: The Hagen Loom
Medieval Mash-Up #2: May Your Stars Align in 2020
Medieval Mash-Up #3: The Border Blunder
Medieval Mash-Up #5: Skinny Leg
Medieval Mash-Up #6: The Comb Symbol
As with any project, it was so instructional along the way. When I looked at it after setting it aside for a while, my thought was, “Oh my gosh, that took a lot of time.” Although I don’t know how many hours were involved, I just know that if you keep at it, keep returning, it will get done. Is that a lesson for our new time of coronavirus? We’ll get through? I suppose, although I miss people.
I have plenty to occupy me, and while I am blessed to have a wonderful home and husband, I am often disgruntled. We’re eating well, although all of the rules of grocery shopping and bringing in the items are annoying. Please keep safe, everyone!
Thanks for the inspiring post.
Robbie, I spotted another Scream! Google the Getty Museum challenge. People are recreating famous paintings at home using household objects.
