And here is picture of the blue plaid as it hooks up …without getting the flash close to the wool! Hope this helps!
I was able to use a beautiful blue and brown plaid wool in my hooking today…and also a light green plaid..! 🙂
As you know from previous rugs I have done, I use plaids to give motion and interest to backgrounds and motifs as well. If I choose a plaid that has the colours in it close in value, it “reads” as a solid, but a solid that has more life (in my opinion!) than a true solid colour.
The blue-brown plaid looks like a “dark” from a distance…but a dark with lighter areas here and there!!!! Like highlights or shadows in the mix. The background of this rug is a texture, almost like a herringbone and it is simply used to set off the motifs. I don’t want it to call attention to itself..! (you can see the texture in photo 2)
So here is Progress on Day 3…Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
We have two photos today!
