“In some distant places, forms change as the light dims. And shadows pass like whispers before we are aware of what has just transpired.”
Here we go…! 🙂
When I start a rug like this, I first need to see if my background choices will work. I’m starting on the right side, about 1/3 of the way down so that I can hook the transition from the “sky” part to the “shadow” part of the background.
I am using a blue plaid for the sky, hooking in a small part of green mottled hand-dyed wool for the transition and then the very dark black/blue/green for the shadow part. Later on, when I reach the bottom of the rug, I may add a dark brown for more shadow/land…but that will be decided many days from now!!!!! (this is a large rug 39 x 49 inches)
I will post pictures of the wools I am using when I have decided to continue with the chosen ones. 🙂
As you already know, the start of these rugs is funny because the first hooking gives you colours and nothing else!!! But we do have to start somewhere! Day 1 shows the blue plaid I am using. (the second, lightened, photo shows a bit of the subtle colour in the blue plaid.)
So here we go with Progress on Day 1…Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
