Now I don’t usually give “advice”…although I do ramble on from time to time!!! …lol… but today I’m going to try it. “Never put a face on anything you don’t want to turn into a “personality…with all the quirks and expressions that go with that personality!!!!
For today’s post I Had intended to work on finishing the bottom border of this rug. But Noooo!
Since I gave in and let “Oswaldo” be facing the front and looking into the entryway…(instead of having him just sit there as a nice pumpkin decoration with his back to us all…!!!)…I knew when I saw the lovesick look on his face that he had been smitten by a lady pumpkin inside the_______!
However, I did not intend to have a pumpkin at the lower right of this rug…there was not a place for a pumpkin, let alone a starry-eyed lady one who was looking a bit romantic herself! (Why I did not just put a couple of flowers, swirls or weeds on the right and the left of my center motifs, I just don’t know! )
But instead of quietly hooking my lower border today, I was redesigning the lower right of the rug so that the lady pumpkin who has put “Oswaldo” in such a rapturous state could see him and be seen by him! That look in his eyes finally got to me! So…..
Progress on today’s post – Day 8 – the picture of “Oswaldo” from yesterday…and the picture of his lady love, “Prunetta,” are shown today.
I intended to have my other motifs be the stars of the show on this rug…but I guess another couple won’t be too bad! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
