Tapestry Loom, dressed in Winter White

Tapestry Loom, dressed in winter white!

Partially dressed Tapestry Loom, waiting for it's first half pass of the Cherry Blossoms/Enso design.
Sett at 8 ends per inch and woven with ALV Norwegian wool and USA milled wools.

11"w x 14"h woven
Weaving tapestry is Zen like, a daily ritual that cannot be rushed.

I honestly have an ache - or maybe it's wistfulness when I see a loom readying or in process. There is a longing, maybe from past-life, to sit quietly, meditatively, attentively weaving at a loom. I've done small beading on a loom. I owned the sweetest little loom for 20 years waiting to learn how to string it and make sweet things.
But that ship has sailed, I think. Mostly likely, anyway. Plenty of other interests, callings and meditative endeavors so I'm not bereft.
Just a little wistful. :)

My weaving roots skipped a generation, I physically reconnected with them in Podbiel, Slovakia autumn 2015. This month at gallery in the park, Richland, you may catch me weaving tapestry, a little demo.
Tapestry is soooo addictive!
