Here we go with the next 1/3rd of the rug! 🙂
Right now, I am busily working on the right side border of the rug…placing colours where I believe they will balance out the bright leaves on the left side.
This Halloween rug tells the story of “Witch Winnie” who, on the first day of October, always goes out searching for a new pumpkin to ride with her on Halloween night. She needs a jack-o-lantern to light her way through the dark night skies! 🙂
Unfortunately, this particular pumpkin has a fear of heights and is trying his best to “blend in” with the colourful leaves in the Autumn woods. He certainly does Not want to be flying through the night sky with anyone!!!
Witch Winnie is not sure about him either…so we’ll never know just what her choice will be. On the next 1/3rd of the rug, there is someone else trying to persuade her to overlook this particular large pumpkin! This next character wants the smallest pumpkin possible and would prefer it NOT be a jack-o-lantern!
Witch Winnie’s dress is done in duller colours as the main focus of her character is her face! The main focus of the pumpkin is also his face and the same goes for the next character in the final 1/3rd of the rug. The “band of focus” is a diagonal line of faces.
So here is Progress on Day 11…as I’ve said before, I was inspired by part of an antique book cover and an antique playing card image of the Queen of hearts for this piece. I also liked the curved parts of the trees and the curved part of Winnie’s dress.
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
