Now today’s post will be absolutely thrilling!!!!! …lol… When I say that, you just know you are in for something rather “so-so”…at least for photo 1…!!!! :)
As I said, I am using several plaids and textures for this smaller piece background just to see what it will look like! (“No, NO”, you shout, “not more background!”) …lol…
As you know, I am not fond of plain, flat backgrounds… although I certainly can admire the beautiful #3 cut hooking on those large, traditional floral rugs with the beige backgrounds and fine shaded flowers!
But I like experimenting with textured backgrounds and especially plaids!!!!! So photo 1 is background (turned sideways so it doesn’t go down the page forever!!!) Do you recognize the plaid…it is the one I used on the lettering for my “Rooster Today…” rug and for the scallops on the “Joy is a Bluebird Morning” rug.
The only thing I do Not like about this plaid wool is that it is not 100 per cent wool. There is a synthetic in there that makes tearing it on the grain really tough!!!!! That’s why I’m using it up and will get something that is all wool, if possible, for my next light plaid.
I decided to add some green and some yellow into the mix…(that green is a plaid!)… so have hooked that alongside the turquoise wool…I am still looking for more “Spring” colours…maybe some more pink and coral and…!!!
So here is Progress on Day 5…Happy Hooking! Sunnie :)
