Fear and Weaving

A few months ago I bought a 2 harness Gobelin style tapestry loom. I warped it then my life got crazy. Now I am looking at this loom and I am scared to start. I have done tapestry on a small scale before on a frame loom. I need to get passed this and start. I have felt this fear before with painting. What I call masterpiece syndrome. Making sure my design and my technique is perfect. So when I am unsure or in doubt I don't start. I need to just try have fun and enjoy the process.

I also think time and beautiful weather is a factor. I am an Early Childhood Educator and this is a busy time of the year. I only have 4 weeks left before summer holidays and these weeks are so full. When the sun is shining I wish my looms were upstairs where I could enjoy the sunshine. If and when the kids move out...........

Happy weaving

  1. So the loom is warped!! Always a plus!

    Do you have a design planned for this piece? Yarn picked out?? Starting projects can be so hard.

    Is your tapestry loom small enough that it can be somewhere sunny for the summer?? I'm solar powered I think!

    This is a crazy busy time of year....hopefully you'll settle into a rhythm soon! Good luck! Can't wait to see what you make!!
