|The finished work, the full length of Peg's work table|
|Using her tried and true construction method Peg has used the cloak form |
which has worked so well for her in the past
|The warp is a fine white merino wool, the weft, which emerges to become the long drapes,|
is unspun pure silk fibre
|A close up of the woven heading which is embellished with just a tiny amount of sparkle|
|The long strands of silk sliver are bound and secured with fine ribbons, complementing the sheen of the silk|
Peg attended the anniversary celebrations right from the start of the dawn ceremony and didn't miss anything. Not bad for a lady who is to celebrate her 97th birthday on 9 July! She made a speech to the girls and unveiled the hanging to the delight of all present. Hopefully for the next post we will have a photo of Peg making the presentation and also the hanging in place.
