Except for the hemstitching...........
I have included two views to give some indication of the relative size. On the loom the piece measures 7.25" in width x 14" in
length. A comment has been made that it seems like a large piece. I must confess that even in these photos it appears to my eye to be much larger than it really is. I can only think that it must have something to do with the boldness of the colors.
Speaking of colors, the orange at the top is wrong. It is really yellow but for the life of me I could not get it to be yellow with my software. I am going to have to look at my PaintShopPro manuals, I guess!
Also, the piece as seen from the side looks a bit wavy near the bottom half. But that should block out nicely with washing and hard pressing.
It is difficult to see where the piece ends at the reed because the reed shades out the top of the piece. Also, the top of the piece includes the possibility of a hem through which to place a hanging rod. I'm thinking of a small dowel rod which I would paint or stain. I would gratefully receive ideas!
I am eager to get to the next piece. I have wound 15 small skeins for dyeing -- 50 yards each skein. I have the dye formulas made up....on paper that is. Next week dyeing begins.
