Mum's the Word

The chrysanthemum is finished (that is, the weaving is done although not the finishing). I wanted to take a photo before the center of the flower rotated down around the sandpaper beam too far, so at the point the picture was taken, I still had about 150 picks (about 2.25 inches) to go, plus the top border.

Tomorrow's agenda, among other things, includes choosing a piece to enter in an exhibit that wants every piece to be mounted on a 12-inch-by-12-inch (precisely!) canvas stretcher. So I have to go through what's in inventory or what's waiting to go into inventory, and pick something that can be mounted as specified. It's an open (unjuried) exhibit, so I didn't have to submit anything specific in advance, just say I would send something that meets the size criterion. The only other requirement is that it be "contemporary." If only I knew exactly what they consider "contemporary!"

So pretty! I'm glad you've already perfected the framing, now to just select something out of your beautiful inventory. :)
