I keep saying that I am always surprised at how much time it takes to fill in background…! After doing so many rugs since 2005, you would think I would be used to it by now! But even rugs like this where the motifs take up a lot of the rug, the background still seems to take hours to do. …lol… It must be mental..!!! Maybe I am so interested in the motif I am hooking that I don’t realize the time!!!!!!! 🙂
I think I am being successful in redesigning the motifs to fit properly with each other since I am using the #6, #5, and #4 width strips and not the #3 that I thought I might use when designing this rug. As I said, the motifs were too close together in my drawing and had to be refined. But all goes well..!
Here is Progress on Day 8…Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂 (I think I need to tweak the roof on this birdhouse but will see about that after hooking more around it..!)
