...and I mean that I am totally over the rainbow situation. Am considering calling this rainbow finished! Have hooked and reverse hooked colors in different places numerous times. Either the colors didn't seem to work well together (think hit and miss) or had too much red or another color in one spot. Really wanted to use the green wool which is in the limbs and stems but it didn't seem to work when the strip of wool was in my hand. I'm over this damn rainbow ~ I think.
In looking at that photo again appears there still is too much red and to think I was worried about red elsewhere in the rug.
So contemplating this rainbow as finished have placed a strip of background wool along the underside. Since the star on the left was made higher and into a flower perhaps it would work okay.
Plus, if I do pull out the blue then some of those now hidden ends would need to be redone inside the loops of whatever is hooked in its place. See what I mean about being over it?
There are some of you out there who are not intimidated by hit and miss. While I do love the look obviously don't have knack for it. Now, if it was regimented with 5 or 6 different colors of wool and they were worked in order over and over then that would be easy peasy. I'm working out of my worm baggies and want it to appear primitive.
Think I'll work on a little background along the bottom and safe sections of the rug and not bother with the rainbow any more tonight.
Wanted to get this piece further along before drawing out the OOHRH challenge rug. Plus still haven't completely finished binding the two horse mats.
Have a great evening and hope your Sunday was as mild as it was here today.
