my first tapestry

It's taken me a little while to work up the courage for the show-and-tell but here it is at last, my first woven tapestry.


It was based on this photograph that I took of Olive and her dad at the Osaka Aquarium. Can you see the whale shark in the background?


The beads are intended to serve as braille dots and give a description of the image so that it can be accessed by the sighted and vision impaired alike.


While there are lots of really obvious errors, I learnt a lot too and am keen to do better next time!

That is simply beautiful and the beads as braille so thoughtful.

I am so glad that you have shared this with us in blogland.

Hi, where have you been learning to weave? There doesn't seem to be many people doing it.
