I actually titled the blog post "Let the Journey Begin". But that didn't really happen...yet. Instead think the title should be what it is now.
That soon to be journey would be the Out of Hand Rug Hookers Spring Sheep Challenge, otherwise known as OOHRH. You will have to join the group in order to participate in the challenge but that is the easy peasy part.
The pattern has been drawn on linen and chose to draw mine out at 18 x 25 so those dainty daffodils would be a bit bigger.
It is one thing when you take a class at a camp and you can't carry your suitcase full of worms with you. BUT at home you have those baggies accessible.
Since daffodils are a spring flower that means there would be a spring green grass, right? So I dumped out my huge collection of greens on the table.
Then began picking grass (the bright) and flower stems (the darker). The colors don't meld well to me. Plus flat colors don't do it for me any longer. Flat (non-textured) are great for certain things but as I'm color planning the challenge rug am not ready to start.
Check back to see if I get out of my hooking slump.
