Tapestry Mounting

Yes, I’m supposed to be asleep, but sleep won’t come. I began mounting Men Without Limits as one of the stay busy sleepless in the night activities. It ground to a halt because of the lack of a staple gun to nail the backing cloth to the frame. Besides making a sleepy trip to Norfolk to collect one suitcase (and hoping the other has arrived at the local airport), I’ve not been outside. Worse yet, I’m debating the wisdom of mounting it on the wooden frame before sending it. Possibility of a broken frame, you know.

Anyway, the feel of MWL has given me a taste for weaving with silk. Why not? I’ve got lots of silk cotton for warp and enough silk to dye for weft.
