Now What?

I've got to make a decision on the stars and moon colors so I can move on.  So picked a couple wool options for those motifs and thought I'd hook them in close proximity, hook a little mixed background colors in to see which would work best.  Well I can't make up my mind.

Am wondering if I want the stars to be all the same or semi-close and varied .....should the moon be darker or lighter than the stars?  OY!  No way I could teach a class when I'm wishy-washy about hooking my own rugs.  Just when does this 'color planning' perfection come into effect?

Here is a picture of the Big Dog Hollow with a flash.
Goodness, now that I'm looking at it in the picture can see it appears to have more tan background than the light texture colored wool.  Hmm, and when I was looking at it up close and personal it seemed there was too much texture with blue so started adding more tan.  Guess I need to pull it off my frame more often.

This is without a flash so what it looks like in my house on the floor in natural evening light and the bunny shows up okay.  Plus I get a different perspective on the stars and moon colors.
Since seeing the two pictures at a distance with flash and no flash I'm thinking of pulling out the sliver moon and using a combination of that wool plus the star wool to the bottom left of the moon as the star colors.  And, thinking that either the darker star to the top right of the moon or the star wool to the bottom right should be my moon color.  

Since it is now kitchen clean up time will rest on the thought and await input from readers.

Thanks for visiting.



  1. I am not a very decisive person when it comes to color planning...If you have such a variety of colors to choose from, even worse for , I know it's not is frustrating....
    Your rug color choices are always really great, so I'm sure whatever you decide will be lovely !!

  2. Hi Saundra,It looks good what ever way you decide but I would put the moon darker.Cheri

  3. No matter what you choose I know I will love it.
    Hugs :)
