I think I am finished hooking Rose Hips…except those leaves! I added a narrow border and turned those leaves green. I think I will take the dark purple out from under the leaves. It attracts too much attention.
I really don’t like borders, but sometimes a rug needs one. I think this one did. Just not sure how wide to make it. I am also limited by needing 2″ of backing to turn under and hem. What do you think?
Today I want to press this and get onto making kits for classes. If I have time I’ll hem Rose Hips. I have a major outing over noon hour and beyond. So time will be limited.
Edited to Add: the final photo before blocking. Enough is enough! Sometimes I just have to cut myself off from a piece. I can fiddle a long time “getting things just right”. But sometimes you just have to say “enough”! And this is it. It’s cooling on the ironing board upstairs as I write. Hopefully will have time to hem it today. 🙂
