Straight ahead or sideways?
I finally decided on my next rug hooking project. And ironically, that piece of wool I showed you in the last post, will not be anywhere in this rug. Go figure huh! It will avoid the cutter for now and live to see another project.
I was looking through some old photos I took last summer of some flowers and one of them was always one of my favorites. It is taken from the back stem angle of the flower, not front on. So I thought I might try and hook it.
I have this dream of hooking one great abstract rug. I have tried a couple of other times and given up early on. The partially completed messes are stuffed behind one of the sofa's, hopefully never to see the light of day.
I'm not sure what possessed me to try again. Even now as I look at it, I am lost. I am going to keep going (for now). I'm sure every abstract project looks bizarre in the early stages. (Right??) It probably was a stupid plan to try and get re-inspired with a frustrating project, however I am trying to hold on to the notion that this rug will not go all sideways in my head.
In the event, after a few more hours of hooking this week, you never see this rug again (or ever hear me mention it again) - you will know it has joined the other flops stuffed behind the sofa.
