“It was a time of watching flowers grow and search for light. And we looked for moonlight in the garden…but it was hidden.”
Here is Progress on Day 18…!
I have been working more on border…a Lot of border!!!!!!!!! but finally just Had to hook something else so I did 2 more flowers!!! 🙂
Many of you probably do the same thing…work on your border as you go, especially if it is a large one with repetitive motifs. Thankfully, I am happy with it and the colours. The dark burgundy on the bottom and the dark blue-black plaid on the top and sides works for me…and I think it contains all that is going on in the center!
It is a bit difficult working with a wool that is more loosely woven as it tends to ravel in the narrower cuts…but I am happy with the blue-black so it is worth the extra care.
I also find some symbolism in the border too…so that goes along with the character of this piece.
Yesterday, I was hooking along when another design for a fun Halloween rug popped into my mind! So, of course, I had to take several hours to draw it and refine the idea!!! It did make a nice break from “border hooking”.
Now I can’t wait to hook it….!!! It might be a start for a couple of other seasonal rugs featuring the main characters too. And I must find a printer for my patterns over here in Vancouver. So much to do, so little time!!!!!!!
Here are my flowers…I am enjoying the colours and I need to hook another insect too, I think!!!! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
