This blog post will definitely please Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) because she's been beside herself wanting to know what was on my frame before starting my Granny project. Well Lauren, here's the big reveal. And big measuring 30 x 41 ~ that's big for me now and just decided to do it. This is an antique adaptation of a rug I've named "Blue Bowl of Flowers".
I didn't have enough of the same blue color and was not going to dye more when there is plenty of various blue colors in my bin to choose from. Hey, "use it up, make do, or do without", right?
Now for some Granny Donaldson updates ~ Sheila has accomplished more on her adaptation and decided on a dark background. She completed her tree trunk and leaves even marked the leaves with the colors she chose. Me thinks me should do that so I don't forget or try to remember what I'd initially thought to do.
My Field of Dreams) did some dyeing for her rug and says she wasn't pleased with the results. Think all of us who dye wool have experienced that same problem. She has also accomplished a lot since her last posting. Visit Kim's blog (link above) to read her cute post and view this rug again.
Elaine sent me her update this afternoon; so far I see yarn and wool but bet before she is all done it will include sari ribbon. Elaine is an independent thinker doer and is confident to draw her own freehand designs and choosing a motif she prefers. Wish I was more like that ~ a free spirit. You go girl!!!
