Becoming Unblocked

It has been quite some time since I last posted.  I had begun work on the Polychrome Mountain tapestry with such enthusiasm and was merrily weaving away when I discovered that I needed to unweave a section.  After doing that I was in a quandary as to how to progress with the weaving to get the effect that I wanted.  So day after day and week after week went by without even touching any yarn.  Two weeks ago I had brunch with my friend and tapestry teacher, Rita Landau, who talked me through the problem spot and now I am back at the loom and happily weaving again.  Thanks Rita.
