“It was a time when the night was just beginning…And we wondered if what we thought we saw was real.”
And so begins the story of “E or R”…a Mystery!
I am almost through with the design drawing on the linen and will take today to prepare the backing for hooking.
This piece is rather large 39″ x 49″ and it will be hooked in #3, 4, 5 and 6 cuts of wool strips.
I believe I have decided upon the background but will have to try the two predominant wools out to see if they will work. One is a blue plaid and the other is a dark blackish wool with traces of deep blue and deep green. There are hand-dyed blending wools of dark green/black.
This piece will be a “mystery” to me also because although I have drawn the basic design out, I am already tweaking it and fiddling with it before I have even started the hooking! 🙂
So what this experiment actually looks like when finished is Really a mystery to me…and we’ll see if it works!!!!! I believe I told you about this way of working when I did the “Painted Mermaid” rug with the creative doodles. The finished rug did not look much like the design I started with…but it was so much fun to change things as I went along that I decided to try it again!!!!
So I will now get back to work on this so I can start hooking!!!! Happy Hooking To You…and I hope you will enjoy this journey with me into unknown territory! Sunnie 🙂
