off the loom

This morning I went into the studio and finished off my weaving of Bottle Cove. It's now washed and drying in the sun. I have to sew a casing along the back for a wood dowel and have it ready to install and in the mail tomorrow morning to St. John's for the Craft Council of NL's juried members' exhibition.
Lots of learn from this piece. I'm getting better with interruptions along the weft axis (islands, outcrops, anywhere that I have to use many colours going across at the the same time), and I'm happy with some elements of how I highlighted my first-hand experience of exploring the shore area.... it gets me thinking more about the land bordering the sea and our relationship to that liminal space.
