Tapestry - first section

I enjoyed this first section of my sampler, where I learned the following techniques:
Wavy Lines, Weft Interlock, Pick and Pick, Soumak Knotting and Slit Tapestry. As I worked through each section,  I thought about how that specific technique might be used in my first body of work.

One thing I need to do is buy myself a sketchbook and start working on some drawings that can be used as the cartoon for the next tapestry, after this sampler is completed. I may not draw that well, but the rough sketch is all I need to provide the shape. After that it is the choice of color and creating shape that will make the piece successful.
