I hope you all enjoyed the Holiday long weekend…!!! 🙂
This week did not go as planned (!!!) as too much “life” kept me busy and not hooking! But I did finally get in some hooking time for today’s post and I am having a lot of fun with this rug!!!
I am experimenting with bright and then duller colours as I go from left to right on this piece. Also experimenting with “focus”…deciding just where the viewer should look first…what is most important…! With so many bright colours, it can be hard to get the eye to zip right to the most important part of the rug. So I try to get that part to stand out.
One of the reasons I enjoy the experimenting so much is that I always learn something in the process. I keep saying that I like to be surprised at how the rug turns out…and that is true. I prefer that to knowing exactly where I am going on my hooking journey. 🙂
So here is Progress on Day 6…left hand side of the rug is almost finished. Just one more motif to show for later on. These leaves are lots of fun to hook…and I like working with the dark and darker blue wools for the background…!!!!! I have cut some paper to draw around for the upper border. I think it will work, but who knows? (only the Shadow knows!!!) …lol…
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
