Well at least I am giving you a little more information today!!!! lol
I have finished the lower left corner of the center design…but I have not designed the borders yet. I need to look at the rug for a bit before deciding on the borders…just as I did with the Grumpy Lions!
I am happy with my design so far and with my colour choices. As I said when I started the piece…I wanted the jewel colours to “glow” against the black/dark background and as I stand back and look at the rug from a distance, I think it works well.
I believe I told you that I use a piece of plywood and hang my “in progress” rug on it with clothespins so I can stand back and look at it critically! The way my apartment is set up, I can stand in the kitchen area and look across the dining area into the living room where the plywood leans against a chair…and can see the rug from quite a distance away! I love this as it really helps to spot errors before they get too far gone!!!!! 🙂 Also, if I am having company, I just zip the plywood piece into the “wool” room and out of sight!
So here is Progress on Day 8…as you know, I like to do background and borders as I go…but now I have to design at least the left side border!!!!!! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
Do you remember this mystery rug…I WAS hooking a Bird on this one. This is one of my 24 x 24 inch series rugs! There are feathers on my new mystery rug too but they are not really attached to a bird!!! lol
