Bricks Revisited

I have been down for the count with a cold that simply lingers... While I avoid talking which makes me cough, I have been inspired to finish up a tapestry sampler I started in May of 2008.

This is a tapestry of a brick wall; each brick is different and within some color parameters unique in design.  The design is inspired at the moment I start.  So this sampler is similar to the 100 Black and White design project I did earlier this year.

This tapestry has been sitting all covered up and lonely on my antique counterbalance loom.   Until last week I hadn't woven on this since 2009.  I blogged about it way back when.

I do look forward to seeing this piece off the loom since the early bricks were woven in a different stage of my weaving life; a time when I was simply fascinated by structure.    I only wove about a dozen or so bricks way back when and I started today with 48 completed with twelve more to go.

I should be able to remove this from the loom by the end of the week.  Once off the loom this tapestry is not finished...I will need to clean up the back...and then add the mortar.  This will be a labor of love.
