Wasteweave I: Wear and Tear on the Reptile
195 X 99cm (77 X 39in)
double weave tapestry, rya; wool and you name it
Upon arriving home I found friends there in a state of giggly excitment. Maxine was on the phone. She announced, laughing, "Wear and tear on the reptile." Seems that the question had arisen, how can you tell the age of a turtle? She had just called the reference desk at the library to find out.
