Tapestry Diary – 4

I’ve been working on a series of little woven ‘dancing ladies’ for my Woven Women show.

And, Iย  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.

    • LOL – yes, the red shoe affect! I am always quite surprised when people say they are scared by my work. My intention is NEVER to scare people. Anyhow, I am glad that Snowy Spring appeals to you!๐Ÿ™‚

        Noreen I do love just about every single thing you make. The red shoes are great and Snowy Spring is just wonderful all over.
        I am working on your Gossamer Wings Shawl. I am really having fun weaving the parts.
