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.

Susan, the banner is very beautiful and I really appreciate your attention to detail. Gloria
Your work is wonderful!
I like very much your woven flower, they are so inspiring (and unfortunately I am not able to do something so nice...)!
Thank you, Gloria.
AnnaR, I looked at your blog and you have good weaves. Thank you for looking at my work here
Its stupendious--I love the olive
Beautiful piece, Susan! I also love Maira's work, so free and spirited! I saw her show here in SF recently with a lot of her collections included. Amazing!
I really love the way this banner turned out. The colors are subtle and striking at the same time. Really lovely work.
Wow, the more I research the things I love to do most, such as weaving, I am finding other like minds with beautiful, inspirational products. Wow again, if only I can make something like it one day.
Barb, Ha! Ah-love the Olive. It could be a bumper sticker.
Kathryn, I'm so glad you like Maira K. too. She's a true creative, and a reliable inspiration
Deep, Oh, thank you.
Marianne, It is a wonderful world of weaving. You can make anything you can imagine.

I just came over from Spirit Cloth...I am just about to get back into weaving on a small scale at first. I absolutely love this piece. It's wonderful! Thank you for the inspiring photos :).
