Last night, I hooked the other large flower on my Antique Lion rug. I used more reddish wool, more in my comfort zone, and I like it much better than the other flower.
Remember this one?
The smaller flowers will work...but the large one will be pulled and re-hooked to compliment the one above.
I was never comfortable with the pinkish color and now I have decided to use the finished rug in the bedroom. I found a wonderful crewel fabric and will be making curtains for that room soon...using this reddish fabric.
I think the red in the rug will be good with this fabric.
I love crewel...we always had something done in crewel in our home when I was growing up. My mother was a big fan. However, I'm having trouble deciding whether to make fishtail swags or straight valances. Decisions....Poor Mr.M. was holding fabric in place at the windows all weekend, and I still can't make up my mind.
Time will tell.
Hope you all have a great week. If you have HBO be sure to watch the wonderful new movie "Mary and Martha". It's heartbreaking and uplifting rolled all together. It shows "squeaky wheels" doing good work...I am a big fan of "squeaky wheels"!!! Especially mothers advocating for children!!!
Enjoy the day,
