Paper and Linen
As for its extraordinary length, it's a mere 5 feet long, and just 13 inches wide, a narrow textile. I call it a banner, or a ribbon. The birch twig hanger was selected, trimmed and smoothed. The woven linen tabs at the top look really nice with the twig. Yes, details like this please me very much.
Between the loom and the south window is the best light to take photographs. I'll post it on my Etsy shop, and then find a place to hang it here in the workshop. I collect my push pins, step ladder, monofilament, climb up and down, adjust the light, and don't drop the camera!
Maira Kalman illustrated the classic Wm. Strunk, Jr. and E.B. White, Elements of Style, which I keep near.
