I wanted a piece that would be green and have a Celtic feel. What better to convey this than a Shamrock?
The background is filled with leaves.
The design is a marriage of motifs, large leaves and the darker outer border of leaves.
This piece took more than 10 hours to weave and I was very pleased with the design as it was forming on the loom. It looks like a fine lace from a distance.
It was woven on a drawloom, threaded with 30/2 cotton with a sett of 48 ends per inch.
