I think on the 4th or 5th day of starting a new rug I really get a good picture of what the piece can become!!! When I hang the rug on my display board and sit back to look at it I can really see if what I have done works well.
I can change parts of the rest of the rug if I wish, add more colours to put in a “spark” or see if something I’ve done looks out of place. I had to make a change today taking out 2 lines in a motif and making it one line instead. The 2 lines got lost in the background…so the one line shows up better.
I’m not afraid to change parts of the design if something else will look better in that space! I find it exciting but others have told me that it would drive them nutty to be constantly changing things on a rug!!!! 🙂
I have chosen about 6-8 different reds (photo 1) that I hope will blend together well but also add some definition where I need it. As you know, I skip around on a rug, working in different places to test my design and colours. I always say “This one is such fun!”…but it really is and I am happy with how it is coming along! I hope you are having fun too! I’m delighted to be hooking once again! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
