Donut Man is Done

Donut Man is done so of course the question now is, what's next?

One thing for certain, I'm not wasting the other side of this loom, the tan 12/6 seine twine is one of my favorites of all time, so I better get busy. I'm hoping to take the donut fellow over to the photographers by June (ok, I'm not committing to which part of June).

I'm hoping for three smaller pieces inspired by the two years of sketches I've made daily after each substitute teaching job. I'm so glad I finally figured out I had a treasure of ideas to mine from every day. The sketches are very quick and often I write a word or two that will help bring back the memory.
Such phrases as; Make Me, Strawberry Cream Cheese Pop Tart, I Had a Bad Dream and of course a favorite, No.

The sketches below are drawn larger, in black crayon, from those originals.

We'll see what happens.


  1. Wonderful idea! I can't wait to see what comes on the back of that loom... and I really want to see this Donut Man tapestry in person. I love that use of wedge weave!

  2. Thanks Rebecca, I was able to start a 6 inch wide piece today and realized I feel a bit more comfortable using The Wedge intuitively, especially to create weird slits and also diagonal hatching. Stay tuned.
