It has been a month since my last post but in that time I have been weaving most days trying to complete tapestry weaving assignments for my TAFE diploma. Here is a picture of progress of the large tapestry which I begun some time ago. I have nearly finished then have to do a hem and mount it with a batten and velcro to hang. It has been a lot of fun mixing coloured threads in the bobbins to create effects. But I can't say I like the rolling warp I had to use as it's not possible to get an overall view of the design as I'm working.

|The title says it all - learning to weave straight lines, curves, outlines and points. It was remarkably hard to do (woven from the side) and is not perfect. But then tapestry weaving is a long process to learn - I'm into my 5th year of the course!|
