I did handcrafts when I was younger (one of them being weaving) I recognize importance of warp, weft, tight compact weaving, and importance of keeping work surface dry and mold-free. The description of the tapestry brought me vivid memories when I no longer had space for the actual fabric. Thank you for this memory. I love your stories and look forward to reading many more books.
