It's a common dilemma among rug hookers to take a decent photo of our hooked rugs. Some days it seems they photograph better than others. I took some photos today of my completed Wild Horses rug and was hoping for a little better results. All photos were taken indoors with and without a flash. I plan to try again outdoors in the natural light which seems to work better for some rugs.
The Lucy Blue wool from Heaven's to Betsy finally arrived and was the perfect blue I needed to finish the background on my Wild Horses rug. It is the wool in the upper left and right corners.
For now I have it displayed above a primitive chartreuse cupboard in the studio. It really picks up the golds in the rugs and some of my favorite wools in the cupboard. As much as I love the vibrant colors there are days I yurn to see only neutrals and soft shades of something. I am working on a collection of neutrals in one area of the studio. Can you tell I'm bound and determined to hook something outside my norm of vibrant colors? I've come to the conclusion that I have to start with a good supply of wools.
I'm off to the studio to finish some projects, tear and wash some new wools and dream up a new project or two! Wild horses can't keep me from doing what I love!!
May your weekend be filled with unbridled creativity!!
