My Magdalena Dog Rug is finished... maybe. I'm going to look at it a few days before steaming because I'm thinking of pulling out that bright red in the top right corner since it is too much like the one on the left. There are other wools that I could use instead but will live with the rug for a couple days before deciding. But basically I'm happy with how it came out. I might even (one day) hook it again since it is a great doable size and would do it in different colors.
I've taken a couple pictures of it with different camera settings. This one gives a more true picture of how it appears when you look at it in person and on the floor.
The sharper one really washes out the colors but does provide a much better look at the wool colors I used and am sure many of you will have some of the same wools in your stash. And you will be able to see the mix of browns for the top background and the darks in the dog are a conglomeration of different wools mixed in. I think if you double click on the picture it will enlarge for you....I think.
So now what? This makes the 3rd hooked piece that will need binding. OMG, I've never let that many rugs build up that need to be bound. But already I'm feeling like I need a fix..... I don't have anything on my frame!!!!!!! What is a hooker to do???
Okay, okay, calm down now Saundra. You do need to start drawing out your Summer Swap piece ~ I mean, you already know what you want to hook. AH, but I've still plenty of time because it is only an 8" square piece after all. Besides, you could bind one of these rugs while you're contemplating drawing out that swap piece. Yeah, like during that mindless easy binding you can think about the colors, you can watch TV, prop your feet up and just bind. sigh..... still the binding doesn't sound interesting but it is a necessity none the less.
If I make any chances to this piece I'll post a newer version.
I would love to know how many each of you had had stacked up waiting to be bound.
