Wow…was the weather hot yesterday!!!!! We were in the 90’s so I did not hook a lot..!!! But I did get Some work done…!!! lol
Quick post this morning…and since it is cooler today (we had 90’s yesterday!!!) I can really sit down and enjoy my hooking! 🙂
If you look at yesterday’s post you will see the same area of the rug but with my additions and changes!
I did need to hook background and border as well as making those changes to the motif. You will see that I changed my mind about just having the one line of the deep burgundy on this side of the rug, and I decided to use some of that burgundy for background here in the upper right just as I did on the upper left. Sitting back and looking at the rug from a distance is so helpful…I keep saying that but it helps me so much in my decisions!!! 🙂
I started telling you yesterday about the rug and some of what I am doing!
I have told you about some “conflicts” in the piece and in my designing I decided to add a little (!!!) silliness to the rug and make that conflict quite childish between 6 of the motifs! The center motif, coming from the celtic design, is a more serious conflict…until you look closely at it. Then you may smile, as I did, to realize that a peaceful solution is the only way to solve the problem..! The little naughty bird is playing a rather dangerous game…and if the center problem is solved, he might be “in a heap of trouble”!!!!!
Here is my “Ancient Ornament” Rug Progress on Day 24…Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
