Time for a Tapestry Makeover

I've woven a lot of faces in my life, many from customer photos that become gifts...

others a combination of observation and imagination.

As with all ideas, sometimes the well runs dry and things become a bit wilted. In the final hot weeks of summer I decided to turn to something I'm told "everyone needs at least once", a complete makeover.

And yes I know I could use one, but we're talking tapestries.

So I went to one of my favorite places to get ideas, the library, and found a great book by designer Isaac Mizrahi called, How to Have Style.

Personalities are important and reveal themselves over time. Some of my ladies have embraced their makeover more than others. This one seems fairly pleased, most likely she won't change back into sweatpants once she gets home.

I'm hoping your idea well hasn't run dry these last few weeks...if so, there is the possibility of a makeover...
