A few days ago I began a tutorial on hooking a hit or miss chair pad. Thank you for your positive comments and response to the project. The fun part of it is that there are no time constraints so you can go at your own pace. This tutorial is here for you to pick up at any time.
In my rug hooking I love to work with dusty vintage colors, and so my collection of wool reflects my sensibility. If you are used to working in brighter colors, your palette will be a higher key than mine with a clearer, bolder look.
Regardless of your palette, remember to use a generous sampling of neutral colors. Browns, greys, blacks, tan, beige, ochre, etc. Using them will add sophistication to your color scheme.
Since this hooked piece is simple in composition and design, let it be a color study, an experiment in color. Be daring!
Until Friday and our next tutorial ~ Karen
