Tiny Woven Beast
I am seeing a physical therapist for some shoulder pain and problems with a tendon in my arm that occurred from all this weaving I have been doing. I have taken a bit of a break to rest it and am doing stretches that are helping, but today I couldn't resist doing some weaving. Luckily Jude Hill is talking about tiny weave now in her What if Diaries on Considering Weave so I kept my weaving tiny and did my stretches. All in all my arm ached only slightly.
So here is a tiny woven beast. I should have thought to take photos of it in progress, alas I forgot. I cut a rectangle out of the denim then folded back and basted the edges. I ran my warp threads vertically in the cut out hole and wove the weft horizontally stitching it into the denim on each end. The beast was woven in but the raven was stitched on top of the weave afterwards.
