What made this project special is that I wanted to include my signature 3 heart logo in this tree.
I also used this as one of my first efforts at polychrome Opphamta weaving. I used small cardboard pieces as bobbins.
This piece took more than 8 hours to weave, while it is small 3″ x 3″; there was a lot of a hand work to be done to complete the image. At one point there were 21 bobbins in play.
It was woven on a drawloom, threaded with 30/2 cotton with a sett of 48 ends per inch.
This design requires 31 draw shafts to weave.
