Another snowy day

We are having a particularly snowy and cold winter.  We haven't had any significant snows for ten years until December when we received more than 2 feet of snow in less than 24 hours.  We were predicted to get only 1-4 inches for today, but we have 8 inches and the snow continues to fall.  Here is a view out my studio window.

I thought I would just show a photo of the sand pail.  This is my first larger tapestry and has been a real challenge for me.  The sand pail has been a hard piece to weave for me.  I have woven and rewoven that section about 8 times, but I am finally pretty happy with it.  I think the rest of the tapestry will go much faster.

Finally, here is a look at my new small tapestry.  It is a bit of a departure from what I have been weaving.  The other pieces have tended to be more realistic.  This one is very graphic and is inspired from a quick painting that I did in a painting class.  More on this piece as it progresses...

I love the idea of working on a summer piece during the winter. I think you are doing a fabulous job even if you are reweaving again and again. I also like the idea of balancing out the realistic piece with a geometric piece. I've been focusing on geometrics and hope to do the reverse, but I've thought that I'd always need a geometric to keep me sane!
