What a Christmas present for a retired bookseller! The gracious individuals who know me well sent this magnificent tapestry just before Christmas. I took it down to the pool and hung it up in the locker room to photograph the details.
It was woven in the Blueridge Mountains of North Caroline by an Association of Mutual Wordworkers and Weavers, according to the tag. I’m going to look them up on line and post their address here on my blog. They deserve recognition for a tremendous idea, well-conceived and executed, which I would never have seen had not extremely insightful individuals found them and put us together!
By the way, it is also warm and cozy. Today here in Canada on the shore of Lake Ontario it is minus 15. In the city.
