Here is Peter's Rug. I finished the on-loom part this afternoon, and will tie the warp end knots this evening. It will be delivered tomorrow (not like working to a deadline, or anything).
I was surprised, when I rolled it around, to find only one central motif. Most of the rug had been rolled up in back when I got the loom, and I thought, assumed, there would be two central blocks, surrounded by the borders. I guess because the Mass at St. Giles version, the inspiration for this rug, has at least two center blocks.
This is nicer, in my opinion, than one with two blocks would have been. Two seems an unbalanced number, to my Western eyes, for a center section. One, three or five, any odd number, seems more appropriate, somehow.
The loom this rug was woven on is too big for my studio (the yurt). It is 8 feet tall, for one thing (the side walls of the yurt are 6 feet), and it leans against the wall for support (the yurt has no walls per se). So the loom and rug have been living in the garage, an unheated and no power garage. I've been alternately freezing and sweating to get this done, and could only work in good daylight hours. Today, I had no choice, I had to work. Thankfully I had the extra light glowing off the *snow* which fell all day! Yep, snow, in April, in California. Claudia? How did you do this?
