I am zipping right along on this rug…I worked on it quite a bit yesterday as I want to see how the center outline looks! I sketched the outline of the center section on graph paper and was thinking of the outlines of designs on silver trays, painted wooden chests and some Bride’s boxes. I wanted it curvy!!! 🙂
As I said, I am starting on the left side of the rug and will work across it to the right side. I like to do a corner first, either at the top or bottom, so I can visualize what the whole outer border and center outline will look like. If the effect isn’t pleasing, I can adjust…but I really like this one so it makes me want to see more!!!!
So Here is Progress on Day 3…The flower is the “Red Dragon” wool shown yesterday . Do you see the tiny pink leftover strip I hooked into the gold center?
The boot is the plaid wool shown under the “Summer Wine” wool in yesterday’s photo. I will have to change the green spiral on picture 3 here as it blends into the background too much!
