In 2012, I wove a tapestry that was quietly part of a series of tapestries that I have been working on for many years:
In the last few weeks, she has let me know that she wanted to really spread her wings….
So, I wove her a face on my hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge looms: LINK
I built a little loom to weave hands for her, and stitched on butterflies that I had designed and crocheted many years ago.
I used really thick wire to make and armature for one of the larger butterflies.
