Quick post today… I did finish the bottom border with all those “layers” of colour!
This kind of border is a great way of getting rid of smaller pieces of wool…I combined small pieces of that gold plaid and green plaid by hooking them alternately in the wavy line.
I tried using some of that bright turquoise blue in the border at the start and knew right away that it wasn’t correct…!!! I used that purple textured wool instead to give a “Halloween” feeling without taking away from my characters who are the stars of the show (so to speak!!!) 🙂
If a border colour calls too much attention to itself…(unless that is what is wanted)…it simply takes attention away from the center motifs. We always need to decide what is of greater (and lessor) importance in our rug designs.
Here is Progress on Day 5…I’m going to try out the right hand border and bottom corner for tomorrow, a well as some more on the left border! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
