A Poem in Tapestry

Here is a small tapestry I am working on; it's about half done. It is four inches wide and will be about 10 inches long when complete. It is woven in silk singles.

When I cleaned my studio earlier this year I found a folder my Mother had kept and later gave to me. It included all sorts of writings and art work I had done when I was a kid. This tapestry is a line from a poem I wrote for a creative writing class. It still gives me the same feeling when I read it today as I felt when I wrote it long ago.

There are a few other lines from poems I wrote that I really love. I am going to weave another on my Big Shannock.

Love the colors in this piece...reminds me of sherbet ice cream in the summer time.
