I last posted this rug at the end of May and it looked like this:
I’ve turned the rug around so I can work on the other side now. I’ve finished the last two small motifs and the last pineapple motif now. Plus some other things – here it is today:
Half of the outline for the center medallion is now done. And I’ve filled in the center of the medallion to help me keep track as I work my way around the other half of it. I need to add the two larger square motifs on this side, continue the outer border, and add a lot more background. This is a very slow project.
I now need to decide how I want to proceed once the last two motifs on this side are added. Shall I continue moving along to the left until I get to the corner, leaving the medallion until the end? Or shall I fill everything is as I go (the medallion before I get to the corners)? I probably have another month before I need to make the decision – I’m always worried that the motifs and the borders won’t match up correctly at the other end.
