I’m so glad I have a covered board to clothespin my “rug-in-progress” to so that I can sit back and look at it from a distance!!!
Today I have been trying to find the right colour for a motif and several that I tried did Not work! I finally redesigned a part of the motif so that it worked better and seemed right…and that finally worked!!! Whew! Now it might not look very impressive to you…but the photo with the star is the result of my 2-hour struggle. I hooked colours in, took them out, draped different wools over the top of the rug and looked at them, tried another, etc. Finally found colours that worked and did what I wanted them to do in that space!!!!! Hooray!!! 🙂
The second photo shows the addition of the strange colour combination of the rusty reds and then several purples are added. I am hoping that, when everything is done, it will look good…but that is a hope, not a fact…..!!!!!
So…here is Progress on Day 7…I’m still pondering another area of the rug where it will be a little tricky with the colours, but all will become clear in good time (I hope!!!)
