Marion Hamm's Horses and Hearts Design

It isn't finished yet but needed to see what the rug looks like on my computer monitor.  Since I've changed the red and blue color schemes I'm thinking there may be some reverse hooking needed.  

Won't change out horse colors since the background requires them to be a lighter color.  Would loved to have a sorrel horse but they have dark tails.  Once on the floor I'll never give the horse colors another thought and not worry about the two similar palomino horses.
Interesting seeing this on the monitor as I am thinking of making some changes in the heart colors.  There are only 6 horses and had trouble coming up with color ideas for them.  HA!  there are 14 hearts so try coming up with non-boring or repetitive colors for those!  Ya see my problem?

Ya notice those two most center RED hearts?  The one on the left looks okay and am thinking of making the other near the white horse look the same with a darker perimeter.

THEN.....on the far left plan to remove that blue center in the red heart and make it more mottled red like the one near the white horse.  

Yup, that's my plan for what's left of tonight but think it will only be the reverse hooking and not the replace hooking.

Have a good evening.



  1. Love seeing what you have done and your thoughts on color choices, great way to learn more on choices we make.


  2. Love that mat,,,
    The color look amazing to me,,,
    You do such a good job,,,

  3. Your horses look great. It is hard to tell about the hearts. I would leave them all till the background goes in, but I bet you have already changed them

  4. Love the colors you are using ….the horses look great ! Will be beautiful !!!

  5. Hi Saundra,
    Sometimes seeing it through a different medium really helps and I know that you will come up with just the right combinations! Loving this rug!!
    Hope you have a great weekend!
    Heart Hugs~
