Quick post today…and a wish for a very Happy and Safe Thanksgiving for my American friends and family! 🙂
When I started this rug, I did not have a “real” title for it as I wasn’t quite sure exactly what I was going to do with my sketched design!!!!!!! So I simply gave it an identifier… “BBB” for Bluebirds, Bluebirds, Bluebirds!!!!! …lol…
But after my final decision on the center design, I decided to call it …”Joy is A Bluebird Morning!” And today’s picture is the start of my hooking on the “sun”!!! I wanted it to look like a “sunflower” in the sky…looking “warm and sunshiny” (!!!) but not standing out too much from the background!!!! So I’ve used a little brighter yellow and an orange-spot-dyed wool for the sun.
So we will see if this start works with the rest of the design when I have the background all filled in. I used the center hand dyed orange wool to hook small “sunspots” in the background…I will see if I like them when I get more done!
Here is Progress on Day 16…Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
