Work in Progress

The images on this page show tapestries in progress from the start to the finished product. As the tapestry progresses you can try to guess what the final image will be.

Work on a tapestry starts even before the loom is set up. If the tapestry design is from a beaded tapestry pattern that has already been created this takes little time. If I am designing the bead pattern from a photograph, an image, or a purchased cross stitch pattern it can take longer to make the pattern than to create the finished tapestry.

Depending on the size of the tapestry and the number of bead colours used, completing a tapestry takes anywhere from two or three days to many days or even weeks to complete. Once the image on the tapestry is beaded there are still final touches to be added to create a finished product.

The Moon

It is hard to tell what this is going to be It does not look like a moon at this point! The Moon is starting to peak out. There are some wonderful Tarot cards that make lovely tapestries.

Lovebirds

Started a new tapestry. When I reached row 50 I realized the pattern was not symmetrical so I took it all apart and started again! It looks much better now. The lovebirds are complete. They look happy!
