More square

It is difficult to get a perfectly square photo with a loom that is slanted so I had Lenny hold it up straight.  The result is better but not perfect. However it is a better picture.

Finished - minus the hem.  Alleluia.

Although it doesn't look it, it is square.  I have measured it.  The loom is on  an angle; sounds like a good story.

Getting There

Today I spent 4 hours weaving, just for a change, and one hour blending colours for the red escarpment shape.   My plan is to  try to weave 1/2 of this shape and across the tapestry tomorrow.  I have decided to set a deadline of Friday 18th to finish.  I am looking forward to exploring around Kyneton and give the dining room, which is my studio at the moment, a break.  The pictures below represent the progress of 42 1/2 hours.  Amazingly, I still like the design.  I haven't worked out if my sticking to the task is dedication, stupidity, bloody-mindedness or not wanting to be beaten.

I wish I knew how to put pictures side by side.  The bottom of the 2nd picture is a bit dark and I am glad I wove one of Albert Namajira's ghost gums given what has happened to them.
