Karen Kahle Rug Designs

I completely forgot to include one of Karen's other rugs I hooked called Home Tweet Home so thought I'd show a picture of that here as well.

And after yesterday's blog post Cheri asked if I dyed my wool and commented on liking the pink in the Small Flowerbox rug.  So I went to the pink wool in my stash to see if I had any tags on the pink over dyed wool to see if any of it was dyed using Karen's recipes.  While I know I've used her recipes before, none of the pink had a tag indicated it was dyed using Karen's.  So, I took a few close up shots of some pinks in flowers so you can see how I mixed my pinks together.

In these shots you can also see that I used a variety of darks for the background; could have been a purple, blue textured brown and black plaid, etc.

I used a flash so the colors are showing up a little lighter than the eye sees it in person.  But at least you can see how I used a mix of pinks and neutrals as well as darker value in the flowers.

And if you scroll down to the previous post of yesterday you can see what the whole rug looks like in comparison to up close shots.
