Hooray…I was able to finish up the lollipop tree in the middle of the rug, do a little more background and fill in a “small filler section” just above the crow on the left side of the rug! 🙂
I am adding touches of white and light and bright in the motifs to continue having them stand out against the dark background.
Now you might look carefully at the lollipop tree and say to yourself…why didn’t she hook the circles in the lighter section all the same? Some of the light colours used around the colourful centers just fade into the background…and some of them are whiter and stand out more! As you know, I am using up woolworms and being “free” with my choices…so I simply grabbed worms out of a “light colours” bag and used them! Again, this rug is an exercise in using what you have (!!!) and I doubt if the circles in the lighter section of that center tree will ruin the whole rug design because they are all not the same!!!!!
You have my permission to deduct points for “odd inconsistencies” (!!!) …lol… on my rug!!!
I’ll do more background today and then jump into designing the next animal…!!! As I said, I have “generic” animals sketched on my backing but am changing and redesigning as I go. That is what makes it fun for me!!!! (My fox looks better to me now that I have more animals done…they are all very simple designs with very little detail…!)
So here is Progress on Day 20…are we having fun yet????? …lol…
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
