tapestry in normal light

I started a tiny tapestry from artwork measuring 5  1/2″  x 8 1/2″ weaving a tapestry at 5″ wide, using the same old soldiers-  wool, cotton, mohair, silk and wool blends.

Yet , despite all my admonitions, here I am working with the oldest and most traditional materials and techniques:-paint, paper, yarns and fibers.
