My wee grandson does not like it when I make a doll or weave a tapestry that has closed eyes, or no face.
He frowns and says to me: “She can’t see me! Open her eyes!”
I think I have internalized his demand to ‘Open her eyes!’, because the other morning, I woke up, after dreaming about my large Singing Mermaid tapestry, and heard, you guessed it: Open her eyes!
And so, The Singing Mermaid from my Woven Women series- see here LINK for previous post about her:
has opened her eyes – with the help of my felting needles and some fleece:
The colors are looking slightly odd, but in real life, they are quite pleasing.
The Jasper Community Habitat for the Arts Gallery that will be hosting my ‘Woven Women’ show of tapestry and woven works is not on schedule with the construction.
So, the show will now be running from August 1, to Sept 9, 2014 in Jasper AB.
