tapestry update

Its been too long time from my last blog update. Too much has been shown in FB.
I have tried to make more work with the tapestry lately. It is not so much to do out now, which helps.

A&S loop

I come back over and over again in to old themes in my Arts and Science projects.

This time it is medieval city of Tournai.
Tournai was one of the tapestry weaving centres at the time. I have visited and stayed overnight in there.
My very first copper printing plate is town map of Tournai.

Now I have reached Tournai from an other point of view. It is again a map, but made by computer game Forge of Empires. There was, ofcourse, some problems with a scale of the buildings and roads.
Here is a result.

This is the original map.

Now I will quit playing that game. It has some features I do not like. And next I will move more and more further in timeline.

New Year 2016 update

I have not made updates lately, but it does not been that I have not done anything.

First part of the Christmas holiday went sewing a Tudor Gown. Materials are wool, linen and real fur.

After that I continue weaving a tapestry.
