Haven't we all been there before where we second guessed ourselves? UH, yeah!! Well that is what I'm feeling on my rug right now. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy, but wondering how I could make it better and what I should have done. This is what the rug looks like now.
In looking at the photo above I wonder why I didn't put a mouse under the belly of the blue cat... or a yellow dot? Or maybe I'll end up pulling loops and hooking a circle of a color in a few extra places.
So now it is time to figure out a border treatment. The area this rug is meant for needed a width larger than the silk painting I did in 1998 so now have to figure out the border for the ends. OY!
I thought of blocks of color and the beading all around the border. But am afraid those blocks of color will take away from the beautiful cats inside since they would be so structured.
So, I've other thoughts rambling inside my grey matter and will practice here and see what I come up with.
In all honesty it is hard to believe that I'm still hooking a rug so far out of my box. I believe a lot of that has to do with the inspiration from my teacher at Cape May (first week) Ali Strebel. Ali, if you're reading this I had a blast and would take a class with you again. OH!! And I'd want to do the Sampler again the first day too!
Check back to see what damage or progress I've made in my next post. AND, PLEASE be kind to one another. Kindness really does go a long way and multiplies.
