The hooking on the first two samples is done and I think I have determined the tone of the wedding rug. The first sample is just too sedate and ordered. This rug is going to be playful and a little off-kilter, more like the second chair seat. I have one more sample to do–this one depicting a version of Owen and Carissa’s home–before I actually begin to plan the rug. Background colour is a big question right now. And type of border. Both things need to be determined before I begin the rug. Meanwhile, I better get design #3 on backing so that I will have something to hook at the Hook-in in Belleville this Saturday!!
