New Hooked Rug-Little Allerton-Day 12/rug hooking/Sunnie

Little Allerton – Day 12

Not a lot exciting today!!!!!  LOL  Just continuing to add background as I have some more swatches on order for the flowers!

We don’t always have to do the motifs first and the background second.  Sometimes, it is nice to do the background and then hook the motif as the motif then stands out better!!  (Rather like the trick of hooking lettering with leftover woolworms and then, after the background is hooked around the letters,  hooking the chosen colour in.  Makes the lettering stand out beautifully!

Happy Hooking today!!!  Sunnie  ; )
