Back again

Here I am back again and already it is only 5 weeks to the next assessments. PANIC.

I have just started a large tapestry, well large for me around 1 metre square. The picture below shows it so far, which is about 10% complete, that doesn’t sound bad does it 10% done already. The warps don’t look very straight but I am sure that is just an illusion of the lens. I want to get it finished by the next assessments, it’ll be tight but I might manage it. It is a bit left field for me, very abstract but then I was thinking about it and realised this was the sort of thing that I got c- for at school. However my tutors have all been very positive about it so fingers crossed. For anyone who might be interested I am weaving from the back which is unusual these days, this is because I am trying out a new technique called ‘double weft interlock’. I keep rushing around to the front to check on it, hence there are some bobbins hanging down the front. It means you are more in control of all the ends but it does take a huge leap of faith to keep going and not get up and go around to see how it is doing every five minutes. Maybe a big mirror would help. The black isn’t just plain there are some textures in it which will become more apparent in the right lighting and as it grows. Watch this space, this is just about all I am going to be doing for the next 5 weeks so there won’t be many other pictures on here.

I got feedback on my essay marks last week which was good, he didn’t completely trash my efforts and I made copious notes just in case I have to write any more essays, you know, just in case I decide to come back and do another year here next year.

So that’s it for today, got to dash, times up, lots to do.Black and White Tapestry 1
