Taking the garden rugs to work on at the lake this evening…..here are some “inspiration” pictures that I’m using.
Bird of Paradise
for this part of the rug…
Here are the color’s I’ve pulled out of my stash….really trying to use “what I have on hand”. Here is a great tip…..pin your colors together….that way they stay together for a certain area and you’re not always trying to track down that “other” piece of wool from the bottom of your basket or bag.

Here are the wools I pulled from my stash…
This area of the rug I’m going to try something different….
This is the color I’m thinking of….
….and this is what I’m thinking about for “technique”….I think this is called “couching”…..I’m going to secure this cording to the pattern using strips of wool, so it will be kind of 3D……
I doubt if I’ll get ALL of these things done tonight at hooking, but I’ll share what I do get completed.
