Yet, in retrospect decided that would have been too busy a border for the central pattern which are the cats. So now I want to look at what I've hooked and decide if I want to do two rows of blue or a row beside the blue of the cat color above him. For sure the bright blue needs to be at the border to bring it all together. And since those are the two center cats perhaps they should be side by side....OR divided by a row of dark background? Guess there will be more playing with wool tomorrow.
One thing I know for sure.....the pattern of this I offer will NOT include a border. It will be for those beauties in the middle. Besides, the silk painting I did of this in 1998 was only the cats in the middle; I only wanted the extra end borders to fit into a certain part of my garden bath.
Must say that I do like Ali's suggestion with the beading at the edges. This rug will be on the floor but will be with VERY LIMITED walking so that double wool in places around the edge will not pose a problem.
Have a great evening and get ready for the temperatures to become fall like. I'm not ready to turn the heat on so will put on sweat shirts, turtlenecks and sweat pants to keep warm until the dreaded heat.
Remember to be kind to one another. Tis the season coming up with longer lines and frustration. But just a smile and a fun comment could turn the atmosphere from dark to light. Life is just too short so let's enjoy it's potential.
