Here's my progress photo after the unabridged version of P.D. James' The Private Patient. The reds are fairly true in the photo but the greens are a bit off. Please don't ask me what it is; since I have no idea. There is nothing recognizable in the black and white scan I received to weave. All I know is that it's one twelfth of a Georgia O'Keeffe painting.
I must say, it was a wonderful feeling to make it to the top; at least in one spot. I figure one or two more books on tape and I will be done weaving and onto finishing. This is the point where I need to pay attention to my edges; I have a tendency to pull in at the very end in my excitement to get done.
PS. This is woven on a Shannock table loom which has gotten a bit skewed. I am thinking the leg bolts on the bottom should be below the bottom beam and not above. Once I finish this weaving I am going to swap the position and see if the piece is more stable. I took the loom apart to fit it in my suitcase when I went to Convergence...so perhaps I put it back together wrong!
