This is part of the large “Helen’s Tapestry” rug patttern that I will be starting today. Watch for the first progress post this evening! This rug is 32 x 54 inches and will be done in the narrow cut wools (#3, #4, #5…and maybe a #6 in some places!!). It is designed by the Harry Fraser Co. and is a lovely pattern.
Because I am a primitive folk-art style rug hooker and have never worked with narrow cuts (except for a class taken in 1998 where I learned to shade the petals of a rose with an 8 value swatch!!!) : ) …this will be not only a challenge for me but I’ll be learning as I go! Also, as you know from the Bradley Primitive rug adventure…I don’t colour-plan my rugs in advance. I just get a general notion of what I want and then plan as I go!!!! We’ll see if this works on this rug! LOL
I have a good friend online who has promised faithfully to puree vegetables for me and arrange for hair transplants if I lose my teeth and clumps of hair while doing this rug…so at least I have planned for that!!!! LOL (Get ready, JoJo!!) : )
I hope you enjoy the creation of this rug along with me! Hopefully, we’ll all learn a lot…!!! I’m going to start at the bottom of the rug and I’ll post a picture of that part this evening. You can’t see the bottom of the rug here.
This is waaaayyy out of my “comfort zone”!!! : ) If anyone has done this rug or anything like it, I can sure use information along the way!!! Hre we go, ready or not!!! LOL
Happy Hooking! Sunnie : )
