“I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged into a woood, and I-

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.”

Robert Frost.

I thought the weaving would be over once I had woven the 16 tapestry pieces. Wrong! I have to edit to make the shapes fit and make sense. At least, make sense to me.

Before sewing the pieces together, I want the pieces to make sense individually and as a whole.

I don’t like the top part of the 6th tapestry piece

So I am reconstructing the 6th piece. Now I see other areas in tapestry I might reconstruct. I might want to improve or restore sections.

Would it have made sense to have planned this out in more detail?

Absolutely. The road not taken.
