Hooray…I had some time to hook yesterday evening and had fun doing this flower!!! (and…I filled in some blue too, as you will see in the 2nd thrilling photo!!!!!) 🙂
I had to laugh at myself as I looked at the rug hanging on my “display board” last night. Although I could easily have had symmetry on this piece, I chose to make each side of the rug different… so it is just a little “off”!!!!! …lol…
It is not that I don’t like symmetry…I admire the beautiful floral and geometric rugs that have exactly the same motifs on each side of the rug! But it is just not the way I like to work…! I delight in seeing the precise work of others where they express their joy in uniformity and consistency…I’m just not moved to do it myself!!!
You can see the “scribbles” I make on the backing as I redesign or refine my first sketch…I’ve said before that my first drawing on the backing is usually a “suggestion” of the final rug-to-be. It is never meant to be a pattern to follow exactly!! For me, it wouldn’t be fun if I knew in advance what the finished rug would be!!!!
As you will see, when I show the completed rug, I have made the motifs on the right side of the rug a little (or a Lot..!!!) larger than on the left side. And although I was going to put the scallops the same on each side of the rug, I decided to make them spaced differently too!!!!! I think it is my constant experimentation and the “I wonder what will happen if I do this” attitude that guides my work. And, of course, the great fun in it all…!!! 🙂
So here is Progress on Day 10…I’m having a grand time and I’m glad you’ve joined me for this hooking adventure!!! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
