The Last Inch - Pulling In

Back of tapestry
with 1 inch to go.
One more inch to go on my kaibab squirrel tapestry.

The last inch is always the hardest...particularly here where the last inch is merely a grass background.  Nothing really to keep me interested except for the finish line.

The problem with the last inch is that the edges tend to move inward due to inattention, speed and a different bubbling of the weft.   Now that I have stated the issue, I will now see if I can finish up that last inch...without the edges moving inward.

I have a lovely frame for this piece.  The edges need to be a certain size and ...straight. Should be done tomorrow. Let's see how it goes.
