Finally - on the wall resting
I tried several levels since I just couldn't believe the two nails were in a line parallel to the floor. The floor doesn't' show up much since its a light maple while the ceiling is dark wood. I went with what the level was saying and my hanging device is now up and so is Pelican Sunset.
I do like this wedge weave tapestry. It looks far better in person than on the wall in my somewhat dark studio. I need to have the tapestry rest for several weeks to see if I need to re-sew the backing in any places. The yarn I used turned out to be quite stiff woven in wedge weave. It needs to be pulled at the bulging edges to have it lie straight after packing. I am using small weights to get three troublesome areas to hang better. Then to be completely done, l just need label in the back and perhaps on small autograph on the front.
Any again I am reminded, one is never finished with a tapestry when it comes of the loom. Although there is a great sense of accomplishment when cutting the tapestry off the loom there is still so much to do to get it hanging at its best on the wall.
