Even though I am often angelic..... (OK, stop laughing now) I am actually referring to another kind of halo. My lastest rug project was not very well planned color-wise and I had hooked myself into a dilemma. But as always, blog friends came to the rescue with suggestions.
Lauren from Rugs and Pugs suggested I try a halo effect around the ladies. I already had 2 rows hooked around and had enough wool to hook a third row and then I started hooking the remainder in a dark brown wool.
I think it's going to work. Thanks Lauren :) I will hook a little more tomorrow night and see if that's enough. I'm tempted to extend the border a little more with one highlight line but I'm going to wait before I dive in again without a bit more planning. Unless something drastic happens this piece should be done by the weekend. When it might get around to the binding is another story. Lol. The hookers dilemma --- loves to hook, hates to bind.
