I haven't posted pictures of the two hooked rug projects I'm working on lately, so I thought I'd do that and share the progress I've made. The stair rugs are coming along nicely - just need to get leaves on the pineapple and I'll have four of them all hooked. Do you think that red star is too bright?
I'm not so sure about the face on the little girl below - maybe I should re-hook it with a tan color instead of the peachy pink that I used? I didn't get the motifs spaced very well on this one, but it's too late to change it now so it'll have to do. I'm really enjoying these rugs - the borders are fun to do - I'm rummaging through my worm piles to use for that part. And the motifs usually just need a little of this and a little of that.
My Portugal rug has the horse finished, and the background. All that's left to do is the border, which will be a rich, warm, dark brown that I've already dyed. I'm trying to decide if I should hook one row of a bright color - like red - between the background and the border. Any thoughts? It will measure about 29" x 35" when it's done.
I'm trying to decide what to do next, but there are so many designs running around in my head it's hard to choose!
