Yes, that's right - FINISHED!!!
And now the more boring bits ... leading up to the finish-line ;)
Cutting the tapestry off the loom!
Me posing with my tapestry (Anita thought I should have left it like this, with the warp ends hanging down :P):
After the warp ends were plaited and stitched to the back, it was ready for an iron:
I finished my little cross stitch to be attached - here it is, pinned on the tapestry:
Monday night I changed my mind, and decided to see what badges would look like instead - MUCH BETTER!!
I'm feeling so relieved right now ... but also quite sad that I have to say goodbye for a little while while it's in Warrnambool. I confess I'm quite attached to it - when you do a piece of artwork that expresses your style and personality, then it's more than just a piece of artwork - does that make sense?
I've just come back from a couple of days at Robe - Anita took me as a little celebration for finishing my studies ;)
