Finally got the pattern transferred to linen by tracing it on red dot and then onto the linen.
And where I am today:
This will be my first rug that will actually go on the floor. You know the saying "never say never"? I said I'd never do a rug to put on the floor, and look at me now.
First loops pulled:
The wool I used in the middle of the pomegranate and the bottom of the flower is the wool I dyed with my friend E. It will always remind me on the fun afternoon we spent together.
If you look on the right side of the pomegranate, the area between the pomegranate and the orange leaf you can see the background I thought I was going to use, I think it's going to be too dark.
On the left side of the pomegranate I put a line of light wool to see if it would work but I don't like it either.
I'm going to the Hooker Hill Wool Camp the end of July and am hoping that with the input of the instructors (Brigitta Phy and Susan Feller) and other students I'll find something that will work.
I've been working on my rug, going to water aerobics at least twice a week and I've started a Craft circle on Tuesday afternoons for the community. We've met three times and so far there have only been five of us. I'm hoping others will join in the fun.
Til next time, Ronda
