Trying to be a little kind to myself here. What I really mean is I'm very disappointed in my latest rug I designed.
I had high hopes.
I struggled with the design, the colors, the wool choices.
Rug measures 16 by 28. I hooked it in two days after finally admitting to myself I didn't like it.
Figured I had so much hooked ( over half) that I just wanted to get it over with!
I'll say I did enjoy pulling some loops though as it's been quite some time since I've hooked.
Debated whether or not to go public with it. But decided to swallow my pride.
I know what "they" ( the analysts) have said, you need to make art ( rugs) even if they're bad.
We learn and grow through this experience.
Maybe so... I wouldn't want to make too many rugs I don't like. The backing and wool aren't as cheap as watercolors and paper!
It's not that I don't have other rugs I've made that don't exactly flip my switch.
We all have made them... right?
It's just that I had this vision... was all excited and just couldn't quite pull it off!
So now what?
I think I will get out my dye pots!
How bad can one screw up dyeing wool?
There's always a need for antique black background colors.
