Hooray! The new design is being readied to transfer to the linen! This will be a “real” Mystery Rug…just like I have done them in the past…with you having no idea of the finished design! : )
I will probably give you the “hint” of the first letters of the title…but unlike the Grumpy Lions…you will NOT know what the theme of the rug really is!
I will tell you what I had intended to hook this time…because what I came up with in my very, very convoluted way for the final design is not anything like what I thought I’d do!!!!! lol
After doing the Grumpy Lions and having fun with them…I thought I would do something quite different with colour and theme. Since Grumpy had used lots of browns, golds, orangy reds, etc. I thought I would try something “foresty” and cool with deep greens and blue-greens and a mysterious “something” in the forest.
Some years ago, I led a challenge on Rug Hooking Daily called “Forest Secrets”. The participants could do any size or shape they wanted to do but they had to put into their designs…a rock, a ring and a touch of royal purple! We had wonderful rugs and mats done!!! Such fun. (My design was a take off on ‘the legend of the green man”…called “The Watcher”.)
But due to the type of designing and planning I do (being open to ideas that just pop into my mind, having a moment of madness or loving something I see in one of my art books!!!) I often get waaaay off the original design theme. So you DO have a hint…this rug will Not be a “forest” rug!!!!! 🙂
I am hoping to start this one by the upcoming weekend…so get your calming music out and your de-stressing exercises so that you will not want to run screaming from the computer when you visit here. (I know I often run screaming from the computer when I have to post pictures of these things I do!!!!!) LOL
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
