Zipping right along…now that I feel better I am almost back to my “hooking” self once again. You know I am sick when I don’t feel like hooking!!!!! 🙂
I wanted to just explain a little bit about how I do these latest “mystery” rugs for those who are wondering. My work is becoming more experimental and the designs are more “off the beaten path” to say the least. Also, my Blog process is a bit different from rugs I’ve hooked here in the past. ..such as commercial patterns I hooked in 2008 & 2010.
For those not familiar with my work, I used to start at one side of the rug and work to the other , start at the middle and work out or start at the top or bottom and work up or down. Now, I jump around the rug and do a lot of scribbling and changes as I experiment. This means that you are all subjected to a somewhat erratic process that drives you nutty (!!!!) but works well for me!!! 🙂
The theme of this rug starts with a sound! I told you earlier that I have brought together several motifs from the far past and adapted them into a design with my own drawings and papercutting additions. There will be several interpretations of this design’s meaning. (why are you not surprised?) …lol…
I am also experimenting with colour on this rug and using lots of plaids. I am using up leftover woolworms when they work with my chosen colours. There are 4 plaids in the photo below and the “whitish” part is leftovers. And you already know that the blue is a plaid for my background.
I am having fun with this one already and we are only four days along…but I say that every time!!! I do have lots of fun…and that is most important to me. ..especially now that I am a “little old lady”!!!!!!!!!
Here is Progress on Day 4: Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
