I'm going to start posting finished rugs from customers and students more frequently. When I do so the title of the post will be "ANOTHER FINISH" This one is from Debra Inglis from the 2011 Star of Texas workshop and she worked on my winter walk pattern. She wanted to proddy the trees so we had some fun with it.
We started out proddy the whole tree and it was way to bushy! So we took out most of the proddy and scattered it around the tree. Didn't it turn out wonderful? Debra has a good color sense and this rug is very primitive. I just love it. Debra added the snow to the background and I think it is just terrific! Also check out the right tree. Can you see the red bird in it? We needle felted a bird and added it to the rug. Just another example of different techniques you can use to embellish your rug! Hope everyone had a peaceful and joyous Christmas. I sure did spending time with family. Maria
