|I write this post as my tapestry warp |
rests in an azure pool...
I decided this year to work on one of those calendar tapestries that many tapestry artists have been doing...
I have done something similar in the past with my "Brick Wednesday" tapestry. In that one, I wove at least one brick every Wednesday until I got a bit bored and ignored the tapestry for several years just finishing it this year with a bang.
I have a concept but need some bright and cheerful warp to keep me going for the entire year. I selected azure as my inspiration. I hope the warp color is true to the color in the photo of the dye pot. I always use dyed warp since I like to have the option of having exposed warp and white warp looks so naked and unfinished. White warp also strains my eyes against all my white walls so a colored warp is always better in my studio.
I will be using my Big Shannock for the piece even though it will be but a couple feet wide. I envision four sections; one for each quarter.
Ah the bell rings...I must go stir my dye pot!
