Tapestry a Day

An artistic challenge, to weave a 6"(w) x 33"(h) tapestry by the first of February.  The cartoon for  this tapestry, a thank you card for one of my daughter's, I had sketched, at a friend's house.

Yesterday, the American Tapestry Alliance Facebook page, for the day, featured my "Schweitzer, Christmas Sunrise" 16"(h) x 45.5"(w) tapestry.
Little surprises and little bits of art daily make January days rewarding!

There is something so uniquely captivating in a tapestry in process. Your design and colors are so inviting. I feel warm fires, hearth and home and quiet, meditative process. Ahhhhh....
Thank you.
It almost makes me get my I've-had-for-30-years-from-a-garage-sale-little-loom-I've-been-toting-about - out. But then I remember I'd need to learn how to re-string it...

...and I might have let it go in the estate sale..., I'm not really sure.

Bobi, I can always come up with a loom if you are interested. But watch out tapestry is addictive! Art is addictive!
