As often happens, I had a few designs that I was considering for my next rug and had just about decided when I realized that with this hot weather (!!!) I did not want to use my brain very much..!! lol I wanted something to do that I did not have to think about…just to enjoy.
Sooo…I did what I often do in these situations. I got out my notebooks of past design “scribbles” (on napkins, envelopes, pieces of scrap paper, etc.) and while going through them I waited for something to jump out at me! 🙂
Since I wanted to do another “De-worming” rug, I took 2 of my sketches, put them together, added a couple of things and “Ta Dah!!!”…I had the main part of my design! I will design the border as I go…but it will not take much brain power to do that.
I’m not experimenting, trying for a certain effect or working on something serious!!!! I have that plaid wool that I wanted to use and I’m going to try it here. If I don’t like it on this piece, at least I’ll see how it hooks up in small areas as a background!!!!! lol
You won’t have to use Your brains very much either as you follow along on this rug! So we will all get a rest..!
I’ll work on getting my design enlarged and transferred to the linen today or tomorrow and see if I can get started…I want to get hooking once again!!! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
