Well…here we go again on a new Mystery rug! 🙂
Another experiment combining motifs from Celtic manuscripts, from the 1500’s and from the 10th century. I have added some papercutting and drawings of my own to the mix and this rug will be approx 22 x 33 if I don’t change and enlarge it a bit!
I am using #3, #4, #5 and #6 cuts on this one and here is the plaid wool I am using for the major background. It “reads” as a solid with little flecks of colour and I love it…! It is a bit darker than what this photo shows.
Of course, the motifs are adapted a bit from the originals but I have tried to keep the flavour of what I love about them! They are quirky and whimsical…very appealing to me! 🙂
Also, besides enjoying the experimenting with colour and motifs, I am again setting up a piece where there is openness for several interpretations of the title. Not as “far out” as my “Enigma” piece…but a bit mysterious in itself.
This is just the start but I am already enjoying this piece and hope you will enjoy traveling this hooking journey with me too! So here we are on Day 1 of “FO”…Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
