Here is an early peek at the Blossoms on the new rug. The photo colors are not great, but the blossoms are a pretty soft pink with pale yellow.
Tonight I dug through my stash with a photo of a Monarch Butterfly in hand and found some colors I think (hope) will work. I'm very nervous about this butterfly and the detail. So I headed to Corinne's house with wool scraps to sneak some time with her Mom's Townsend cutter. I thought a #3 or #4 cut might help with the details. WOW, that machine is AMAZING! Cuts like butter!
Hmmm, maybe I might have to start saving my pennies for one. I'm sure if I think hard I can find a way to justify why I NEED one as opposed to just WANT one. LOL
Anyway - Back to Reality for a minute.........my weekend goal is to hook the one larger Monarch butterfly on the edge of one branch. Then maybe I can see where the rest of this rug is going. I'm kind of winging it here!
