Oceans and Skulls

I just realised I hadn't posted a pic of my last assignment!  It it (loosely) based on sand dunes, and the different colours of the beach near our house.  I'm really pleased with how this turned out!

Next tapestry assignment is a miniature tapestry of our choice.  I've chosen to give myself a brief to design a logo for our radio show, Shadowplay.  Let's just say there will be a skull wearing headphones involved ;)

Our current colour scheme is black, purple, grey and white ... so I'm keeping the tapestry in these colours too.  Here's a sneak peek at the wool I've chosen:

OK, I'd better finish off my sketches and warp up the loom! 

Oh, and by the way ... the website is now up and running!  I have a few more tweaks to do, and a new banner is on its way - but I'm getting there! 


  1. very nice tapestry, you are becoming quite advanced.

    with the next one, how about a bit of glitter, say some silver yarn/thread.

  2. Thanks Kaite! I feel like I'm getting the hang of it now ;)

    I *did* use some metallic blue thread in one of last year's tapestries - it was so awful to manage, but looked awesome! :P
