12x15cm (plus fringes)
It doesn't look exactly like the photo I worked from, but if I don't compare, I am rather happy with my first ever Real Weaving Project. An Artistic interpretation! :-)
Building on from the bits that I learned during the weaving classes, (See here to read the previous post about weaving) this Poppy is a complete exploration of materials, texture, colours, shape...
I became aware that that is exactly what I like to do in any creative project. Learn some of the basics about the material I'm about to work with and then explore!
However, there is a level of impatience when I am working on something new, on something that is not clear from the outset what it will look like.
The very wise weaving teacher suggested: "Enjoy the impatience. It is an energy you can change into curiosity."
This might sound silly, but I even love the feel of the tapestry, there is something sensual about touching the woven yarn.

ps... As always it is lovely to know that you stopped by to read my musing and follow my creative adventures. It would make my day if you leave a comment... preferably here, on the blog...? Many thanks & Lots of love Corina
