ONE TAPESTRY WEAVER'S DESIGN PROCESS

Tommye Scanlon is a tapestry weaver. I have always been interested in tapestry.  Interested enough to try my hand occasionally.  I like Tommye's tapestries but what is really intriguing me in her current blogging is following her design process.  If you are interested in watching over the shoulder of someone in the process of designing, go read these posts from her blog, Works in Process:

More Fiddleheads - and some Flame Azaleas   
More Fiddleheads     
And Still More       
And Yet More    

And now the weaving begins:

New Tapestry Has Begun

Good morning, Peg. I always start my day with my coffee and your blog. :) It's fun to see what you're up to every day!

Tommye's work is so lovely, and it has been a real treat to watch her creative process with the fiddlehead ferns and with her daily calendar tapestry, I agree.

There's something so inspiring about being able to peek into one another's studios, albeit through this virtual environment.

Some days it's almost as if I can hear the simmer water in your dye baths, or the sound of the beater in Leigh's studio, or hear Trapunto get up and walk across the room to stretch her legs after a long sleying session.

Technology -- a two sided coin.

Weave on,
Jane
