Connections... "Magic Tapestry Network"

I made this piece for the American Tapestry Alliance's contest with the theme "Connections". Although my tapestry was not chosen for the show, I do not feel sad because I love my tapestry very much and I would never make it if the "connection" subject would not intrigue me. While I was weaving this tapestry, I was thinking about all the weavers who belong like me to the same circle - Tapestry creators.

We all share this wonderful passion
Revealing our happiness
And pain of creating,
We exchange ideas and knowledge
Of this beautiful medium….
We fill up empty space with threads
Weaving the enchantment or the ordinary
We expand this same web
That is Magic Tapestry Network.
..........This piece is dedicated to all of you remarkable weavers.

Krystyna, this is a lovely and unique piece. I hope I get a chance to see it somewhere, so keep entering it! I love what you say about it, too.

Beautiful! Love the colors. Can you share how it was done and how big it is?

Thanks Kathy and Sherri,
I made this piece (13.5" x 13.5") in total trancelike… I found a circle that was a part of a lampshade, wrap the linen warp around and wove two days non-stop. Usually, when there is a new experiment I take pictures systematically… but this time I totally forgot!
