Happy Mother's Day!
This one turned out to be approximately 5" x 7" (12.5 cm x 17.7 cm) in size if stitched on 40 count silk gauze.
The middle of the rug took quite a while to fit in elements I wanted to keep from the original rug and I tweaked a few things in it to better suit the rug I was designing. Colors were a challenge for me on this rug. I changed them several times before I was satisfied. I am so glad I invested in a real thread DMC color chart. It has been of invaluable help to me. When I actually have the skein of floss in my stash, I pull them and lay them side by side to make sure they don't clash with each other. But when I don't have the skein, this color chart allows me to place the skeins I have beside the floss in the color chart to double check.
One of the things I like about this rug is that there aren't any large areas of uninterrupted background to get bored with. I like designs that have a lot of elements because I tend to get bored stitching large blank areas. On the flip side, sometimes it is nice to have large areas where I don't have to carefully follow a pattern so I design rugs like that as well when I want a change.
This rug pattern is now available for sale in the Etsy store, here, if interested in taking a peek.
Until next time, stay safe everyone and Happy Stitching!
My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
