Working on another part of the rug for today’s post. Keeping the bright plaid here as no other motifs are affected. 🙂
I think I will add some of the border today to see how my colour choice works!!! I was told early in my hooking “life” (!!) that a border should use a colour from the rug center and not add another. But I often experiment with a totally different border wool…sometimes it’s fine, sometimes, it looks dreadful..!!! LOL I like to do a corner, stand back and look at the rug from a distance and then take it out if I’ve goofed!
( I have a piece of thin plywood that I have covered with fabric. I pin the rug with clothespins onto the board and set it in front of a chair so I can look at it while I am having lunch, etc. I usually can spot any problems, even little ones, right away by just looking at the rug for a while. It also helps other ideas pop into my mind…or changes, etc.!!!) 🙂
Here we go on Day 3…
Happy Hooking, Everyone!!!
