Tapestry Stairwell Hanging

"The best laid schemes o' mice an' men/ Gang aft a-gley." by Robert Burns sums up the path of this lovely wool, crewel tapestry I purchased on a past adventure (read more here). It was to be displayed in my living room five years ago, yet sat forlorn and neglected nestled on a dark, closet shelf.

I recently came across it, and immediately knew exactly where it belonged ..... in the stairwell of our Ranch. I needed to find something to hang it up with, and saw this old bamboo fishing rod at our local Re-Store for $2. The color and kitsch were perfect.

Next up, how to attach it to the rod. Some recycled sari ribbons that I had seemed just right; and the pretty pale blue purl cotton gave a subtle accent.

The tapestry is now at home, cozying up the tall, narrow stairwell. It's nice to have another WIP finally finished.
