Today I decided to not spend the hour plus whipping the edge of my previously hooked rug. Instead chose to hook more on my present project to decide color choices for the leaves. Seems more clear when seeing it on the monitor. So here goes....
Well hells bells. Seems it is the background which stood out like a sore thumb to me. The original antique background I struggled with how to hook it as I loved that blotchy gold part but already did that with Cottage and Apple Tree. Here is the original deer antique below.
Don't fret, this is not a 'put it in the bag' moment. Am still in love with this design and I'll have to choose different colors for that part of the background. Ya know, this is how those damn wooly worms multiply as I've a lot of that background color already cut.
So guess that hour plus of whipping the edge of Cottage is about to happen this evening after all. Who knows what my rug will look like next time you see it.
