While you folks ponder which block you'd like to hook thought I'd take a photo of the forever floral to show you. I wanted to see if the colors are okay before completing that pink and red flower or if it is too pink. Did I mention I'm not fond of pink; yet here I am with pink in the rug. I still have some pink/tan mottled wool I could use, which is in the flower to the right of the unfinished flower.
Also wonder if the addition of earthy colored flowers upsets the flower cart, so to speak. But no way I could handle just a pink and blue rug.
And if the montage of colors is okay then what the heck do I do with the remaining flowers?? I'll hook the penny flowers the same as the others but it's the other two big ones I'm worried about. Where is my rug teacher when I need one, LOL.
Hmmm, with that in mind I don't think dearly departed Barb would have those pinkie and bluey flowers at all, but not sure what she would choose.
My Woman on Horseback pattern has been drawn and on my frame. So far I've only hooked her hat, hair and am on her face with a narrow cut. Yup, that's all I've accomplished. I recall in a class at camp my teacher told us to "hook what's on top first". So that's what I did. As soon as the hat, face and hair are done I'll hook around that with something to contain the shape. Will do that in blue until I decide if the background will be anything other than sky color. Nope, sorry, not enough hooked to show you.
Happy hooking, stitching or whatever.
