Too bright, too dull, too this, too that… this simple pattern has me pulling my hair out. I’ve changed colours of the lady’s shirt and the animals many times. Next actions will be to outline the pussycat in the tree and shut the pattern in a closed room for a day.
Saundra of Woodland Junction blog is having challenges too. Be sure to check out her progress.
For those just joining me, this block is from the Reconciliation Quilt of 1867. Did the creator have this many issues?!
On another note, our little rug group has a new challenge: to hook a mat from the Garrett Bluenose patterns. These are copyright free now. We will celebrate the end of the challenge in September with a little party and prizes.
I signed up for the rug retreat in NB next month. It’s the casual, teacher-less hooking camp near Rothesay. Cannot wait!
My cat gets lost in the sky and tree too and haven't fixed it yet, Nor have I hooked the dogs. Instead of putting mine in another room have decided to take a break and work on the floral. But don't worry I'm not going to abandon you; however you will finish yours before me. Looking forward to your group challenge.
We are all our worst critics. Your little rug looks beautiful. I'm guessing that the author of the original used the colors she had on hand. What I love to see in these challenges is the creativity of each individual. Nobody sees things exactly the same way and it's amazing how beautiful each one is. I just wish that more would have joined but sadly, I didn't join either.
You’re right! Our unique creativity makes life interesting. This piece is definitely in process ☺️
I think your project is looking great !!! I just wish I had time to join . It is fun to see how we each decide how to hook or projects . Happy Hooking !!!
I would have done this block. Looking good! Have fun with your group challenge. Janice
It looks great, just a few little things like the cat. I have done that many times, not enough contrast and still have rugs I need to fix. I agree, but I usually put the rug where I can see it, while I work on something else, and eventually I see what I want to change.
The simple design is a winner isn’t it? Maybe it’s one you’ll hook in future? Meanwhile I took out a lot of what you see above
Yes, I outlined kitty now and took out colour that don’t sing to me. But if I finish a rug I’ve never gone back to correct/change anything 😞
Thank you! And I’d love the whole quilt as a big rug but I don’t love it THAT much.
Me thinks it looks great!
Another challenge...hopefully not as challenging as this one and rug retreats are always fun and inspirational.
I tried to replicate the quilter’s colours and it wasn’t my cuppa tea. But I live and learn. Very much anticipating the upcoming rug events!
