Back to old weaving

I have been working on this sand pail weaving for more than 2 years now.  I seem to find ways to avoid weaving it.  I have finished a few weavings in between, but now I really want to get this one done.  The sand pail has been a real challenge for me.  I have woven and rewoven the thing about 8 times.  I think I am finally done.  In the last reweaving process, I wove it, looked at it a day later and found that it had regressed rather than gotten better.  I then unwove it yet again, and wove it once more.  I am still not 100% happy with it, but I think now if I try to fix it again, it will again get worse rather than better.  This tapestry has been a big learning experience for me.  I feel that I have learned a lot about weaving tapestries with it.  I am going to get back to it this morning as soon as I finish the bills.  One of life's pesky little things we can't avoid.

The sand pail looks terrific! Time to leave it be. The sand looks really good, too. I look forward to seeing it finished. How big will it be?

Thanks for the nice comments. The final tapestry should be 12x14 inches. I have 5 1/2 inches woven, and I think the sand will be much easier to weave than the rest!
