Never too late

I sent in my entry form for ATA's unjuried small tapestry show a couple of weeks ago.   That put me in a unique state - having committed to an exhibit while not having a loom even warped for a piece.  Not my normal state - I am not a procrastinator by nature but 2015 seemed to get the better of me. On the positive side I have an empty paper clip Shannock loom ready to be dressed for this project. 

The Seaside Tapestry group always does a group entry for this show.  We developed the parameters and dyed the yarn last year...back in March I believe. I was assigned an 8 x 8 inch piece- we all have different sizes. Our theme of seashells was suggested by the matriarch of our group and we all developed and discussed our cartoons with each other. 

So that was as far as I got as of a couple of weeks ago...cartoon complete and yarn samples available for inspiration.  Need to have it completed for photos on March 3rd.  Could be a busy February!

Step one: dress the loom...sett = 14 epi

Happy New Year!

Here is a very happy Nicki cutting off the fourth quarter of her tapestry diary chronicling the events of 2015.  "Whew! Glad that's over...never again."
