New Hooked Rug – Day 22-EXTRA!

 

Extra Entry –  For those who have asked about the wools used and the technique of hooking flowers similar but not the same!!!!!!!  : )

Picture below…Large green plaid used for the large leaves in the smoky blue border!  Outlined by the dull orange as you can see from earlier pictures.  I cut the strips so that I used the darker strips for the one side of the leaf (with the addition of another as-is green, and the lighter strips for the other side of the leaf.

Picture below…Center scroll stripe, lightened to show the different colours in this wool…see the scrolls for how this wool hooks up!  (It looks gold-ish in the scrolls!!) : )

Also…closeup of flowers below showing how odds and ends of wools are used to make motifs less “predictable”!  See what is the same and what is different about these flowers.  : )

BELOW…Picture of flowers on the left…I will change some of this gold flower outline as… since I made my choice of the spot-dyed wool for the large leaves in the golden brown border…the gold flower now looks a bit “same as-same as” theose leaves!!  LOL  Do you see that too?

I hope this answers some questions and helps a bit!!!!!  : )  I’ll do todays’s entry (Day 23) later in the day!   Enjoy!!!
