Hooray…coming along just fine!!!! I said I would be using a lot of leftover woolworms in this rug as well as carefully cutting new worms for the background, the lions, etc.
So…today’s post shows a little bluebird using all leftover blue worms!!! I love him (her!)! This rug may become one of my favorites!!! So many motifs to hook!!!! 🙂
I think you will find, when I am finished with this rug, that it can be described as an original design of mine, “inspired” by several antique rugs. I showed you the first fraktur design that started me thinking…(!!) but as you will see…my rug is not at all like the lion fraktur.
I had thought to make it more of an “adaptation”…but then decided to design the Lions as I wanted them to look…so I am surprised and pleased at how they are turning out…! LOL (Of course, you might be happier if I had stuck with the original lion drawing (!!) but I’m “doing my own thing”…so anything can happen!!!!
Note: you may have noticed in the earlier photos that I have a blue “tulip” in the faded brick red section that has a dark blue and a light blue used. I am holding the flower in place and will not decide if I want to have the tulip fade into the background… or be lighter to show up better…until I have finished more of the rug! I will know what I want at a later time…and I’ll be more able to know what the rug “needs”!!! (or what I need to be happy with the design!!!!!!!) LOL
Here is lightened version of the photo so you can see the colours used. I really love the background plaid I am using…so “earthy”!!!
So here is my Progress on Day 6…the more natural colours. Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
