Why have I dragged my feet for so long on this rug? For some reason, I keep my rug frame upstairs in my craft room and it's probably one of the reasons Out of sight, out of mind.
I've not been hooking much this winter. I had dyed several shades and thought that I had enough so I didn't bother writing down my own recipe because I was in a hurry that day.
I ran out of a darker shade, so I had to dye some more by putting a little of this and a little of that until I got very close to the color I needed. So now, I'm hoping that I won't have to dye anymore but I'm not certain that I have enough of a certain shade as they are all in the same bowl. lol...
I haven't done anything on the blue color and just want to finish the background for now. I'll worry about that when I cross that bridge.
I have found that this rug was easy except for the shading of the blue mantel. I could have pulled my hair out, I was so frustrated with my job of shading... It's funny how we run into a wall and we get stuck on some details.
Thanks for your visit and kind comments. I wish you all a great week. The daylight is getting a wee bit longer every day. Take care and be well.
