I’ve been working on a series of little woven ‘dancing ladies’ for my Woven Women show.
And, I am participating in a tapestry weave along on Ravelry.
This week, I finished one of my Dancing Ladies- “Snowy Spring”.
I have a thing about red shoes, so, I just had to make red patent leather shoes for her….
And I even made heels for them (the soles and heels are heavy leather, the uppers are very thin patent leather)
She’s about 13 inches tall/33 cm tall.
I wove her on the Schacht Mini loom, which is a small plastic loom that I quite like.
I was surprised by how well it worked for tapestry weaving- I wasn’t sure about tensioning on it, but that was not a problem. (I wove in a tiny thin dowel at the top, which worked beautifully as a shed stick, and provided some tension).
She delights me.
I love how the tapestry diary is leading me in unexpected directions.
