On the Jacquard Loom...

...or rather, off the loom:

The image of Pfeiffer Beach on the Big Sur coast is woven. At the point this photo was taken, I'd started the ending border. After finishing the border, I wove in a rod just longer than the warp is wide, with some plain weave before and after, then applied a generous amount of Fray Block.

Then the woven pieces on that warp were cut off, stitched on the sewing machine to prevent fraying during wet finishing, and cut apart. Next, to do whatever mending is required, apply backing, and start the process of mounting the pieces.

More later...
