While pulling loops on my grandson's rug pondered what to do with sweet Ned ~ those triangle sections along a border. That 'thinking' process made me wonder how it would look IF I outlined those triangles with a gold wool. Then it would bring the gold color of the horse and the gold border together.
On the top right corner where the grey texture was hooked I've now decided I don't like that light color in a triangle at all. The blue isn't offensive to me but surely that light grey is. Hmm, am critically looking at the butterfly and flower inside now..... That is where my eyes go and those are NOT the focal point of this rug. Oh my.....
So now I've to decide:
~ what color or colors to hook in those 6 triangles.
~ do I use the gold outside line for those triangles
~ what color if any do I change the inside of the butterfly and flower
Me thinks this was a SHORT recess and my grandson's rug will be on my frame again soon until I figure out what to do to make Ned a worthy steed.
Meanwhile, today in Seaford there was close to 10" of rain fall. As soon as the torrential rains stopped I went outside to take pictures.
This is the right side and to the right is a small bridge which crosses a creek which is overflowing and running across the highway.
Here is Ben's backyard and toward the wooded part of my property from the left side of my back deck. So much water and thousands of deafening sounds from frogs communicating.
Ahhh, one thing my ex taught me from his years in military is... "where there are frogs, there is water". Every time I hear the croaking of a frog I am reminded of that.
Yet, if you look at this and what has happened elsewhere with flooding, I'm lucky. BTW, I noticed an orb or two in one of my photos. I'm wondering if that is my guardian angel or family. Yeah, I'm sure most of you don't believe that gobbly gook, but I do. Each time I see an orb in a photo wonder who is with me. In case you're wondering which photo, it is the one from my garage toward my neighbor. There are actually two round circles. One bright and one below that which is another.
Have a wonderful evening. We each choose how we wish to live. I choose to be happy and try my best to spread that. Someday I'll tell you a story about what I wanted to be as a 15 year old girl in my small home town. A story told to the local police.
