The wolf in front of the sheepfold, by Hélène Crié-Wiesner, 48″ x 44″ (96 cm x 112 cm), Hand-dyed wool weft (from Weaving Southwest), cotton warp (the image comes from a bestiary of the 12th century)

I am so excited to share this piece with you!

Over the years, Hélène has become one of my favorite tapestry artists… and she uses our yarns!

Maybe it’s the images she weaves. Maybe it’s her color choices. Maybe it is because I got to know her and her approach to her style of weaving when she was in one of my classes (that was a bit intimidating, teaching a certified French tapestry weaver Southwestern-style techniques, lol, but we had a wonderful time!). But, there is something about her work that sticks with me.

Every time she emails me a picture of a finished piece I am, well, blown away! And, for some reason, for months following, images of her work just keep popping into my mind. 🙂

I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I do. I’m going to try to dig up a few more photos of her work to share with you soon.

The image for this piece comes from a bestiary of the 12th century.
