Parked car part 2

Well, the more I looked at my first car the less I liked it.  It just had too much wrong with it to let it stay.  So, with a big huff I took it apart and rebuilt it.  It seems that that was my lot this week as my real car had to be rebuilt as well.  Imported Photos 00029Take a look, it is much better now, don’t you think?

Tapestry, at least for me right now, is all about weaving, unweaving and weaving.  I learn something each time I weave a new shape or object.  I find I don’t really see it when it is in front of me.  The only way I really saw the tire and the total shape was when I took a picture of it and then examined the photo.  A real lesson in how to assess the days work. 

My City life sample is going well.  That was a lesson in itself.  I put it on backwards and upside down the first time and didn’t see what I had done until I was almost done inking it.  Luckily I am not working on a continuous warp on this one so I could turn the loom around and reink it the right way.  I used a different color so I could see which lines I wanted to work with.  Much better.  I like the colorful umbrella and I am working for the first time on letters. These are simple letters on a vertical so they are going well for now.  I will let you see it soon.
