Can anyone tell me where the days...weeks...months go!!!
It goes so fast!
I was planning to post this rug more often but life got in the way.
My dad's health went downhill and he passed away at age 98. I left the rug sit for a few months and am just finally getting back to it again.
I'm using the 3 shades of sort of a pinky red for the 2 different style flowers. The gold is the center of the 5 petal flowers. I'm still not too fond of the color I used for the centers of the other red flowers...need to experiment with that and also some of the leaf veins are not quite right.
I had a hard time deciding on what color to make the small flowers (the blue ones). I didn't really want to bring blue into the rug. I liked the pinky reds, the yellow golds, greens and the tan background but several people kept telling me "add blue"!
I did and it's okay...I guess... I'll hook more of it and see how it goes.
Funny thing, I bought a floral fabric to recover a few pieces of furniture in the living room.
When I brought it home, to my surprise, it has the exact same colors on a tan background and it has this shade of blue flowers in it! Guess that pretty much made me realize blue will work!
I'm going to try to keep at it because I just love how it's turning out. This is my favorite rug hooking project so far.
Thanks for stopping!
