My small tapestries are a mess of threads on the back. I weave from the back, so I get used to seeing the mess. I admire the tapestry weavers who sew all the weft tails in. Front and back, the tapestry is finished and clean. So, I am sewing in the weft tails on this little Lucia patch.
Sometimes we hit a patch in life that is filled with a mess of troubles. Take troubles to the Lord. He hears when we call. The Lord answers every little prayer. Each little trouble is taken care of, step by step. When the finished tapestry is revealed, we see that He knows our name. And a bit of every one of the messy threads is woven into our back story. Front and back, the tapestry is finished and clean.
May you be known by name.

Gorgeous. The weaving, the finishing and the reminder of our constant guidance from God. Thank you.
Good morning, Julia, The reminder of God’s guidance is something I need daily.
Thanks for sharing your heart.
Karen, Everything about this little tapestry and your parallel to life, is wonderful! I imagine that your other Grandchildren would want their names woven by their sweet Grandma. I so admire your work.
Beth, you are so sweet! Thank you for your thoughtful words. That means a lot to me.
I think you are right about the other grandchildren. I’ve begun the planning in my head.
Your photo of the finishing technique for small tapestry is clear and the answer to a question I had about small tapestry work.
Hi Louise, This is just one way to do the finishing on the back. I’m certainly not an expert in this area, but I find ways that work for me. I’m glad you found this helpful.
Beautiful message, along with the tapestry.
All the best to you
Thanks, Angie! I write about the things that I’m learning. I have a long way to go.
All the best to you,
much easier using a latch hook intead of threading each one
Hi Vicki, Thanks for the tip. I’m not at all familiar with latch hooks, but I wasn’t aware that they come that small.
