I’ve been dyeing to prepare for my week at Green Mountain rug school. I needed some more of the border colours. The light spot outlines all the motifs–I’ve already used over a yard of it. The dark colour was dyed over already darkish textures as pictured in the second photo. I find this gives the best results both in colour and hand.
And here is Fireworks with the centre almost all hooked and half of the border drawn. I always include a bird on my rugs and am just thinking about where the one on this rug will go.
