I finally got time to hook more on motifs than just on background!!!!! 🙂
Since I didn’t think a nice picture just showing sections of background would be that interesting to you (!!!!!)…here is a better picture of my Progress on Days 7 and 8.
The idea for this rug started with a little drawing in the border of a manuscript from the 10-12th century and it isn’t even adapted into the rug! But, like many of my rugs, it started a thought process that led to my design.
I often am drawn to shapes too…I’ve said that before! 🙂 Sometimes it is just a shape that “speaks” to me…such as the shape of the bottom of a robe, the shape of an arm, or the angle of a neck and head…human or otherwise. Often, I don’t even use that actual motif but draw my own design using that shape. Or it is a colour that I see…I am wondering right now about using a pale-ish green (maybe chartreuse!!!) for a background someday! Who knows! …lol…
Anyway…I am off to do more organizing, decorating and hooking today so here is the Progress photo! Happy Hooking and I hope you all have a very pleasant day today!!! Sunnie 🙂
