Quick swap

I considered my options for the background.  I really favored a dark option but I didn't have a lighter green appropriate for the branch and leaves.  I also considered going some bold, bright color.

In the end, I dug through the stash and found this.  Nice and neutral

I may hook this pattern again in the future and try something different.  But for now I stuck to basics.

Just wanted to post a quick update.  I chased around doing chores this afternoon so now I'm finally sitting down to hook a bit.  I'd like to finish this rug before the weekend is over.   

There is a downtown festival tomorrow so I might go check things out.  Stay tuned :)


  1. That wool is gorgeous. I think that it's perfect for the background.

  2. Morning Kim, love the color of the wool, great rug, Happy Hooking, Francine.

  3. Gorgeous piece of wool! Choosing background wool always gave me fits! I cannot even begin to tell you how much time/energy was spent on that part of the rugs I made. ~grin~

  4. I think it looks great I do like that piece of wool.
    have fun at the festival!

  5. Your rug looks great. Have a wonderful weekend!How nice to get Thanksgiving out of the way so nice and early and get to eat good food too.

  6. I have that very same wool and it does make a lovely light background; good choice. Looking forward to see it as you accomplish more.


  7. I like the design, and I hope you have a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving, Kim!

  8. Hi there Kim!
    I know I haven't been around to comment lately... I've been in blogging slump but I'm still reading everyone's posts! You can't go wrong with a nice neutral wool for a background. I sometimes will take two or more neutrals and use them together in a background for a scrappy look. Your hooking is exquisite as always! Enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday! How in the world did it get to be that time already? The thought of Christmas and Thanksgiving here sets me in panic mode for a moment... so I think I need a nice long walk today in the leaves and nice weather!!
