I've decided to continue hooking on the Red Lion rug until all the loops are pulled then will go back to the camp rug. Just now when I took a photo decided to do a test. The photo below was taken close to the rug as I wanted to see if it changed the appearance of the rug than the photo taken further away. Sometimes I've wanted to get close to the rug to get the whole rug in focus. And it DOES make everything look brighter.
The photo taken further away is more closely to what I see on my frame. What I did tho was 'crop' the photo so there wasn't a lot of excess around the pattern.
Have a great evening and hope you are looking forward to settling in for a long winter with hooking projects. I've got a pile of patterns to keep me entertained and lots to wool to do them with.
