Friday night, just before heading out to dinner with some friends, I layed out the blocking squares, and spread Irtfa'a on the floor. (I had to get extras, since I'd under estimated the number by two in the width and one in the length)
She looks so small there, somehow. Until, you realize that each of those squares is a full 12" across.
Yep -- she's six feet across and a bit over three feet long. Unstretched! I blocked her by just pushing her into shape, stretching a little, but not much at all. While I am curious about how big she'd be if I blocked her hard, I think she'll fit me just fine the way she is. (Besides, those beads are likely to stretch her a little when she's worn).
Just a few beads...
Saturday's plans included weaving in the last of the ends, and --- with any luck -- an actual photo - shoot. But we all know about plans.
