Last Sunday PBS aired the Downton Abbey series 2 marathon. I had never heard of this series. I'm often in the dark about goings on. Anyway... my husband and I are addicted. So addicted that I went to Target and bought Downton Abbey series 1. We started watching one episode a night on Tuesday. Tonight we see episode 3. We're trying to savor it bit by bit. I can't wait.
So the point of all this is, you ask? Well, the beauty of rug hooking is that you can sit on the sofa and hook while watching the TV. That is as long as what you are working on isn't too complicated, you can get a lot done. Hence, I was able to get the background hooked in behind my sheep! Yeah! I did end up going with a blue-violet and I really like it. I shaded it from light to dark from the bottom to the top. I think it adds a bit of drama. After all art is about the drama, isn't it? All that's left now is the lacing, matting and framing.
