A little surprise fairy dust!

We woke up this morning to fairy dust falling from the beautiful and peaceful.

I've spent quite a bit more time over the long holiday weekend working on the "Going in Circles" rug.

I think some of my favorite spots are the wild plaids and checks like these.

I've kind of worked sporadically all over the rug trying to get the colors balanced and now I've started hooking more from the middle out, because the rug is getting rather heavy.
I thought maybe today I should take a color and then black and white picture to see how the values are working with each other. One block was bothering me...the really pastel-y babyish block. It's the one down towards the right end that is pink with blue and then orange in the middle. I think maybe a dark stripe around the orange would help it some....what do you think?

Go forth and be creative,


  1. I love your choice of colors....awesome rug!
