Well, folks, here it is:
You may notice (or not) that I’ve made several changes.
No Woven Border . . .
I removed the woven Celtic border for two reasons:
- Originally, I had a chain of twenty-five links to represent twenty-five years of marriage. In order to get twenty-five links around THIS design, I would have to use a larger link, and the width would be wider than the strokes in the design. The resulting border overpowered the central design.
- A simple circle complements the design nicely.
Not one tree, but two . . .
The finished piece is slated to hang at Gina’s twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. Now, one tree could represent the marriage, but it takes two people to make a marriage as well.
There are two interwoven knots in the design.
I modified the design to make two trees, with two branches each, top and bottom.
Follow the path of a knot from either tree (top or bottom), and the knot ends at the other tree.
Ain’t that just like a marriage??
Gina, if this meets with your approval, I’m ready for the next phase: enlarging the design and transferring it to fabric.
