Aileen's Crown, and Another Maple Leaf

The photo of Aileen, Barbara, and me wearing flower crowns is woven. Here's the top part of the image:

After that, I started working on another image of Japanese red maple leaves:

This is a modified version of the previous red maple piece. It's been cropped and enlarged to make a square shape, rather than a horizontal rectangle. The number of colors was reduced in Photoshop using a different set of constraints, but the yarns are the same. The red is 30/2 silk, and the green a 20/2 cotton/bamboo blend.

Next up is an image of an oak tree against a sunset sky. I've still got to decide the weft colors, and will begin weaving it this afternoon. Photos to follow...

Amazing how much like a photo the textile looks! :)
