Tapestry

November 26, 2008

This tapestry was woven as a learning tool.  I used a  section of the month of May from the Norwegian Baldishol Tapestry as my motif. This tapestry is believed to originate from the end of the 12th century .  I love the imagery in ancient tapestries and the story of this tapestry is fascinating.  This piece is woven on a 3/10 Linen Warp using Harrisville wool as the weft.  The colours of the Harrisville yarn were close with a slightly tweedy colour which I felt added a softness to the finished weaving.
