New Hooked Rug-Day 4/Mystery~Sunnie

Note:  I forgot to mention the backing I am hooking on!  It is linen.  : )

The great thing about doing rugs like this is the freedom you have to do almost anything!!!   : )  Since there is no other rug like this one, there are no guiding colours or plans in your mind already…just the choice of colours as you go along. 

You choose the colours that go with what you’ve already done.  (Later, if you find you’ve put in a colour that doesn’t look right with your other choices, you can take it out and rehook.) 

But I don’t take out hooking unless I’ve made a gross error, or, at least I wait until I have hooked other colours around the motif and see that it really isn’t right!!

I’m really enjoying this rug!  Such fun and I am trying out some experiments too!!!  (Why are you not surprised!) LOL

Happy Hooking!  Sunnie  ; )
