Tap... Tap...Tapestry

 Last year I became interested in tapestry weaving.  I purchased a book and a small loom at SAFF in October and began lurking on the tapestry weaving board on Ravelry.  Here is a small sampler.

The color palette is horrid but this is left over needlepoint yarn.
Fast forward to 2015, I knew I wanted to do more tapestry and began saving up for a small portable loom.  Instead I found a 40 inch Glimarka Gobelin for $25.00 on Craigs list.  We traveled to Southern Pines and out in a old barn there she sat. 

Still needs a good cleaning and polish and 13 warp pegs.
Preston getting back in touch with his junior high shop skills.
Looking good.
Mission accomplished.
There has been some spinning and knitting.  Tomorrow I am taking a tapestry class with my guild.  Then I will tackle warping this loom.
