A SMALL AMOUNT OF PROGRESS
This tapestry seems like the never ending project! This time you can see how much further I have to go to the top of the cartoon. The finished tapestry will be 1 meter wide by 80 centimeters high. The warp is number 12 and I am using 6 strands of 2/16's 9tpi, which is very fine. I dislike the texture of tapestry woven on a number 18 warp but this is taking forever so maybe I should start liking number 18 in the future? I was not happy with the colours that I had been using in the beginning of the apple so I ordered some more wool from Bendigo and dyed it using a milling scarlet which is more of an orange red. I unpulled all of the apple and am now using the new colours. This has worked out a lot better and I am happy with the progress so far.
