New Hooked Rug – Day 19 ~ Helen’s Tapestry

Hooray!  I now think my elephant is a little more discreet as he has “done his business” someplace back in the woods and not on my flower!!!  LOL  I do like the new tail position and his back foot with the adjustments I’ve made so that pleases me. 

Did you notice that I took out the light blue line hooked over the lion’s head?  I thought that showed up too much and took away from his sleeping face!!!  : )  I need to change the stem of the upper right red flower because it gets lost in the background…and I’ll decide if I need to add more flowers or foliage to the upper left after I fill in the black background.  I didn’t want to take away the focus on the elephant!  : )

(Not too much time to hook today but I did want my elephant to have good manners!!! ) LOL

Tomorrow I’ll fiddle more with the upper pond… I didn’t want the elephant gray to blend with the pond water blue, but I think I’ll take out a little of the lighter blue at the water line!  : )  I will be doing a couple more rugs now at the same time I’m doing this one…so that should be a hoot!!!  Gotta get ready for my November show!  (And the Gallery too)  : )

Happy Hooking,  Sunnie  : )

I am a folk artist now living in Vancouver, Washington. We loved our Vermont "Old Crow Farm" but now I live in a little cottage with a bright yellow front door! I no longer have my business but still love designing and hooking rugs and experimenting with colour...! I do "mystery rugs" on my Blog and that is great fun!
