On the Rug Frame

I've been working on a design by Melanie Pinney of American Pie Designs called "We Are Family." The rug is nearly finished and is hooked with all off-the-bolt wool. I will be adding some button eyes to the frog and owls when the hooking is complete.A fun rug to hook, but the colors are much more subdued than I usually work with. I was challenging myself to use less "loud" colors!

I love the colours, but then, I am a 'subdued' colourist myself - and they are rather jewel-like, set against the pale background.

Thanks, Gretel! I feel like I was successful with my color choices.
