I worked on lots of background on Saturday and then began to worry. There was so much medium teal that I was worried that it would overwhelm the rest of the rug. I came up with lots of ideas to break up the teal along the left side where it was so dense, but quickly tossed most of them. The solution was to add half of the Double Horn motif at the edge. All the other motifs went completely across their rows and the center should do the same thing. So here is half of the center as it stands right now.
Now I feel better about it. I’ll continue across the center now adding one and a half Double Horn motifs and 4 more Fish. When the background is done, I’ll fill in the fish to complete the whole rug. It should be done by Thursday or Friday. Here is the rug today.
The timing is really good for finishing this rug. Saturday and Sunday I’ll be attending a workshop taught by Terry Dryden. And then she will present a smaller project at our local chapter meeting on Monday night. I’m really looking forward to both of those projects.
