A year and 6 months after starting this small tapestry I have it completed!
Well, apart from tying up the warp treads and bringing it to the framers.
It was a very PROUD moment to be honest, when I cut it off the loom.

For months, maybe a year, it stood beside my chair, waiting to be picked up and worked on. I was in too much pain to find a comfortable way to weave. Even with the brackets to attached the frame to the table.
|work in progress, or not...
But now I am using my wheelchair as my 'normal' chair and have the comfort of an amazing cushion, I became able to weave, ten or fifteen minutes at the time!
I was able to finish it... and add it as an illustration in my soon to be published Into the Light book.
It will go with :
When the pupil is ready the teacher will come.

Having no choice
I explore its geography
and learn its language
