Yesterday I worked on a lot of background so I thought I’d do a bit more before posting…… pictures of little parts of pale background are not very interesting!!!!!!!!! 🙂
So I did more gold plaid background and motifs for today’s post and was able to turn a corner so I have one corner hooked…! Hooray for Progress!!!!!
I am using a lot of plaids again in this rug, lots of leftover woolworms and lots of small pieces of wool from other projects…so this is really a “Scrappy” rug. Sometimes it is hard for me to create a design using leftovers when colour planning at the start might be helpful. But I guess I like the challenge of making all the wools work together and I really like just starting out with a couple of wools and going on from there. I always say that I enjoy being surprised at what the rug becomes!!!!! But that’s how I feel.
I’ve said on other rugs that I don’t take out a “mistake” until I get more of the rug hooked around it. If it still is a mistake and I feel it detracts from the rest of my design, I take it out. But sometimes the mistake turns out to be a blessing in disguise!!!! 🙂
So here is Progress on Day 7…and I think I will have another photo later today that will not be thrilling but will at least show more hooking!
Here’s what happened to the “Z”…love the plaid. it is lightened so you can see the colours in it.
