The word SLOW used to suggest me images of snails and little old ladies with walkers but never of tapestries until I had the experience of making one myself.
Begun last September, finished last week.
150 hours of work.
Millions of stitches.
And a bit of hairdressing.
Carl Honore would be delighted with this slowness.
I got in touch with my inner turtle, as he suggests to do in this video.
But I hope next time the turtle and I get in touch there isn't any tapestry involved. 
Well, maybe a very small one, and only if the turtle does all the stitching.

  1. Oh my. I've always been fascinated by weaving and tapestries. The amount of work which goes into them astounds me. That piece is just lovely. It really is.
