ghost island

I'm heading into the studio today to get started on another piece. I'm planning on weaving an aerial map of contemporary Sable Island, and then once off the loom, embroidering past coastal profiles and geographical features from maps of days gone by, including the map above by JFW DesBarres from 1779, and the map below by Blunt from 1897.
Below is my warp for this piece. Gradation of blues getting darker towards the center and lighter towards the selvedges....
