Switching flowers

I think I need to change some of the flowers in this rug. My first thought was to make one flower bushes blueish purple for a little contrast and to compliment the band on the hat. (I just remembered I haven't let you see the whole rug yet - just pieces......so you don't really know what I'm talking about)
Well, guess what? I'm still not gonna show you the whole rug yet!! But here is another little piece.

Now this picture doesn't really prove my point because the purple-ish flowers are not popping like in this photo. They actually kind of fade into the green when you see it in person. So I pulled out 2 and tried them in the rosey colored wool. Much better I think. At least you can see them.
So I think tonights 10 minutes of hooking will be to remove the purple flowers. I hate re-hooking but I'm pretty sure it will be worth it.


  1. It does look pretty in the picture. Can't wait to see what it looks like when you are finished.


  2. Looks good here.

    Actually from the photos the blue wool looks fine.

  3. Love the new rug and the little hints now and then, of what the whole thing looks like.

    About the flowers, the red ones really pop out but the blue may work too depending on the rest of your colours.

    I don't know, Kim, I always have problems with colour selection myself!

  4. The purpley/blue flowers look great from here!! I'm don't much like 'reverse hooking' so they would have to awful for me to change it! Really, it looks quite pretty in the photo!

  5. You don't know how excited I am to see it finally done. It's looking beautiful. Good luck on this one!
