I've hooked a little more on the Magdalena Dog rug and think I'll set it aside for a bit and work on something else ~ actually want to finish binding the candle mat I just finished. So it will give me a chance to get away from the rug and decide if I will keep the colors I have used thus far. Actually, for the background in the upper left I'd chosen a lighter brown blend of wools but they were much too close in value to the light dull red in the corner curve.
I have taken two pictures with two different settings; one shows too much the color mixtures throughout and the other shows too dark so thought I'd let you choose which picture you prefer.
Quite a difference in photos, eh?
My plans are to change color for the bottom part of the background but once I start hooking who knows what I'll end up with. Frankly, this isn't how I'd intended to hook the rug as I'd planned on a softer appearance. However, seems like it has chosen it's own destination some how. Sorta like taking Ben out..... he walks me, not the other way around. But then I figure it is his walk, not mine and he can follow his nose is he wants.
