Perhaps longer than it took me yet it seemed I'd worked it out numerous times on the blog to share. Now wondering if it was premature to draw out my grandson's rug. Did all the proper steps and research done. Motifs were enlarged thru my Paint program in different sizes. Actually there were lots of options for motifs which were whittled down to 'keep it simple'.
Finally my decision was made and the pattern drawn out.
So IF I'd known that earlier could have made smaller flags and enlarged the Redskins and Orioles logos. Hooking the design as it is will require me to use some #8 or smaller in the Redskins logo and no less than #8 in the Orioles logo. But there is a lot of background.
Okay, I'm working this process out thru my blogger friends and writing about it might help me and of course feedback is always welcome. Sooooo, IF I were to pull out the black and white that I've hooked so far (!*%$(@!~) and clean up the ends of each side of the flag, then I could do larger Redskins and Orioles logos.
BUT..... would also require that I flip the linen over and re-draw the whole damn thing again. YES, I know that would make me happier to have a really nice rug design and YES it is taking huge steps backward.
So now I've nothing to bind or to hook tonight (so much for binding my Sheep rug). I'll remove the hooked wool from my grandson's rug and sulk. Will also see what it is like to sit with nothing to do except catch up on recorded shows.
