This tapestry hanging was inspired by and adapted from the Ashford Book of Weaving (Project Fourteen, p.169 Jane McKenzie). I wove it many years ago and it remains my OH’s favourite.
Re-reading the instructions in the book, it advises using a cartoon but I wove it free-hand. I used bits and bobs of rug yarn and the sky was the result of my first home dyeing effort using a pressure cooker.
The base of the tree could have been bolder but the soumak leaves have worked well and were really enjoyable to work.
