Oh my but I'm having some issues with the Wee Folk rug ~ wasn't sure how many issues until I pulled it off the frame to take a picture for the blog. The one that stuck out even before pulling it off the frame was the two blue half circle at the top. This was supposed to be representative of half of a wheel, that I get. And at camp it was suggested to not put in the separation grid lines but to just have the color changes and alternate the light blue and dark blue. Frankly, I don't like the way it looks right now. Was thinking that maybe I should make the two outer triangles in light blue and make both middle triangles a dark blue and still not have the grid lines. But for sure I do not like what I see right now. I'm open for suggestions.
Now, look at the bottom of the rug design for the border. You can see there is a drawn in section between the background and the red border at the bottom which has been hooked in the suggested green. So, maybe I should do a green line separating the red at the top as well. The green was chosen perhaps to carry some of the same colors throughout the rug to make the eye move about and since there was already a lot of blue, she chose green.
Now, it was suggested that the border on top and bottom be red and the end borders (left and right side) be dark blue. Therefore, I could change that green trim to a dark blue to encompass the design with all blue around albeit just in trim inside the red.
I am now updating the blog with two new pictures. Decided that perhaps I should take a picture with the blue and green line at the top and the blue at the side. Not taking the time to hook it but just lay it out for comparison.
Here is the blue separation line at the top and could replace the bottom green with blue to match.
And now is a picture taken with the green at the top since the green is already at the bottom where the red border would be.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you can help me with my dilemma.
