“It was a time of listening to the quiet evening. And suddenly, patterns of the leaves floated behind our eyes.”
On Day 2, I am adding 2 more background colours to see how they work. I try to work in an area of about 16 x 16 inches to get a feel for what the entire rug will be. I can try out backgrounds and other colours and make a judgement as to how to proceed.
By hooking in this small area, I can pull out anything that does not work or is not pleasing to me. I try to collect small wool pieces to use up and also I get out my boxes of leftover woolworms. They come in handy!
Here are the background wool choices plus a border plaid:
All of these wools read as “darks” (I have a light shining on them for the photo so you can see the colour variations) and that is important to me. I realize they might look a bit odd when I show them laid out like this…but you will have to trust me that they will work together!!!!!!!! (If it works out like I plan…!) 🙂
Also, I have a few other wools I can use if I run out of these background pieces…I always have a “Plan B” standing by!!!! 🙂
Here is Progress on Day 2…I have experimented with a few colours on the leaves and for Day 3, I will add some more colours on other parts of this small “trying out” area. This gives me a good idea of the “feel” of the rug and how I will develop my theme.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy this adventure with me! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
