Aubusson Weaves Tolkien Kickstarter Can't Post

I noticed last night that a relatively new Kickstarter has launched to weave 2 tapestries (of a total planned 14!) from the watercolors of the good Professor.
Specifically, they are planning to weave "Bilbo woke up with the early Sun in his eyes"

and "Conversation with Smaug"

There are 25 days left in the Kickstarter and they have quite a ways to go toward the targeted funding. It sounds from the write-up like they've had extensive involvement from the Tolkien family and were able to unveil their tapestry of J.R.R. Tolkien's watercolor "Rivendell" to Bailie and that Christopher had been highly supportive of this project.
I am not connected in any way with the Kickstarter (other than being a donor after I found it last night). You can find it easily on Kickstarter by searching for "Aubusson weaves Tolkien".

Great tapestries :D [In reply to] Can't Post

The links to your pics aren't working, but I did go in and take a peek at their site. Their work is beautiful! IIRC, last year Christopher Tolkien visited the gallery showing the work so far, and he was very pleased :) I'm so glad they're continuing their work.
