I have now completed the triptych of Palestinian motifs. The third and final paned was finished yesterday. This consists of three love trees in the centre with hearts both above and below the trees. The border is once again the snail, which is a pattern from Nablus. I like this as Nablus is our twin city here in Dundee. Here is the third panel.
Once I had completed the stitching I assembled the three panels on a backing board. The size of the panels was chosen to fit into a frame from IKEA. Very difficult to get each panel to fit in with the same square edge. Impossible in fact. However I’m happy with the finished piece, which you can see below. Will return to these Palestinian designs later in the year. But now for something completely different. Good stitching everyone.
