I figured that since the main reason I wanted to start a blog was related to rug hooking, I should probably do a post featuring a rug!
Since I an relatively new to the craft I don't have a vast assortment completed to show you. But this runner was last winter's project. I wanted to try something a little bigger than my usual and try my hand at shading. Not a bad effort for a newbie, I think.
My friends at Momz Wool dyed the wool for me. The main flowers are a 6 color swatch of sunflowery golds with rose swatches for the centers. I wanted to take away some of the blandness from the centre so I experimented with a watermark type of effect. All in all it was a good practice experience.
