In the spirit of video blogging, I made this little video. It might give you too much of an idea how much of a geek I am, but there you have it. The wool-fuzzy piece coming off the loom.
My three-year-olds at the hospital would shriek at the sound of that worm gear. I just forgot that you could lift it up and the beam would roll. I guess it has been too long since I took a tapestry off this loom.
This may well be the last tapestry from the Emergence series. I'm not sure I'll do any more of them. The winds of change are blowing and new things are afoot.
Here are photos from the whole series which you can also see on my website HERE.

The spiral form left by Puebloan peoples from centuries ago is thought to be a symbol of emergence from another world. For me it meant change and growth and movement forward. I have done a lot of that in the last 4 years. Perhaps it is time to crawl up through that little hole into the next world. You can bet it will include a lot of tapestry-making!
