This woven wheat heart is a traditional design of Welsh origin and is called the Sweetheart. It is one of the "love knots" and is associated with courting and marriage. This Sweetheart is approximately 15 inches tall (measured from the top to the end of the tips of the wheat) and is approximately 13 inches wide. A lavender wired ribbon bow is attached to the bottom of the Sweetheart to accent the heart and a wire loop is on the back of the piece for easy mounting.

The art of weaving grain has been practiced for at least 5,000 years by cultures throughout the world. Wheat weavings or corn dollies were made from the last sheaves of grain gathered from the harvest. They were often given by young men as courting gifts to their girl friends (and potential girl friends!) and were used as house warming gifts.

The Sweetheart is woven from Black Bearded Wheat grown in North Dakota. The beards are the long tips at the end of the wheat kernels. This is one of my favorite wheat varieties to work with due to it's distinctive look. Even though this woven wheat Sweetheart looks fragile, it's very durable and will last for years as long as it is kept dry. It can be gently brushed with a soft brush or feather duster for cleaning.
