Quick post today…I am still filling in some background but managed to get a motif done too!!! …lol… I haven’t really had a “title” for this rug…using just a simple identifier of “BBB” so far. But I will come up with a title before the finish!!!!! 🙂
I have had a question about using other colours in my background. I told you I was waiting for the new pale yellow-pale gold wool to arrive to fill in the open spaces on my background. The reason I did not just use other light colours with the same value (like light pinks, lavenders, etc.) is that I don’t want even a hint of another colour behind the motifs here. ( If you are familiar with Karen Kahle’s work, you know about the beautiful backgrounds she hooks with many colours blending.)
My choice of only the light yellows is simply a personal choice…but I want to use lots of other colours in the motifs on this rug. So the blending of the yellows makes a more “solid” yellow background…and that is what I want on this piece.
Here is Progress on Day 6…I think I am going along quite quickly here and after working with deeper, more “primitive” colours on at least 3 of the last 4 rugs I’ve done, it is fun to work with the pastels and “mid-hues” on this one!
…lol… this bluebird’s legs & feet look like upside down pitchforks!!!!!!
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
