This is a really fun rug to work on!!!!! LOL I think I say that every time I do a rug…but that just shows that having fun and enjoying the colours and designs I am doing are my highest priorities!!!! 🙂
Although I am using the duller, greyed prim wools in the rug, you will see a few brighter spots included too! After the rug is finished in the middle portion I will be able to see if the bright spots work well. If not, I’ll change them!!!! LOL No worry, no stress…just change them!
One of the reasons I don’t use a colour wheel or any other device is because I want to experiment. It isn’t necessary for me to even group things according to value because I would rather experiment with the wools and see if I can get away with NOT having a dividing line when changing sections…even if the colours are similar in value! Sometimes, I like the colours to flow together and sometimes I prefer to have a definite divide! This time, I like the dividing line best…so I will go with that. I think of my faded brick red as “underground”…and you will note that there is NO dividing line between the green and the brown background wool. I want that to be a softer transition from brown to green.
So here is my Progress on Day-4 I often work in the evening so I am always surprised at how much nicer the rug looks in the daylight..!!! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
