Will a deadline help?

Among projects I hope to finish this year is this cocoon jacket I began weaving in uh... December, 2006 for a special friend's art opening where we were asked to wear red. No, I didn't wear the cocoon jacket and it is still on the loom! Next month, Chimneyville Weavers and Spinners Guild (my guild), will have a show entitled "Make It Red" with one of the goals being awareness of women's heart issues. I only have to hem-stitch the last half, join the panels, bead the collar, wet-finish and surface design the fabric. Can it be done? Will it come off as planned? Here's hoping!

Note the fish or ichthus in the fabric, 3 of which have a bird's eye. These represent 2 of my very good friends and me.

Thanks, y'all. I hope to get to the studio today and cut it off so that I can start fringe-twisting tonight.
