This is really fun!!!!! 🙂
I like using the bright colours for the leaves and then figuring out what wool strips to use to fill them in!!! Yes, I know that those 2 little green leaves don’t “go” with the rest…but I wanted to try little green leaves here and there. If they don’t work out, I can always change them!!!!!!!!! After all, rug hooking is very forgiving when you want to make changes. 🙂
There are little piles of wool all over the hooking room floor now so I can see what wild colours will look good with the blue background! Also, I can use some leftovers here too. I am using mostly #4 and #5 cut strips but will throw in (!!) a #3 and a #6 here and there…especially if it is a leftover woolworm.
I need to be sure the transition from that dark blue to the blue and purple mottled wool works as I go across the rug. I’ll have to adjust things when I get more motifs and background hooked. With all the backing showing it is hard to see just what a few strips here and there will actually look like once all is finished.
So here is Progress on Day 2…the heat is starting to rise today so I will do a little outside this morning and then stay inside during the heat of the day and evening. I can pretend to do a little cleaning, etc….lol…but then tell myself that I am “so tired” from all that exertion and just sit down and hook!!!!!!!!! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
