Welcome Rug Update

2009-02-15 - Welcome Rug, originally uploaded by Sharlene W.

This is a perfect example of what not to do.

#1 - Have a plan in place before you begin. (All I knew for sure was I didn't like some things about this rug).

#2 - Work from the center out, not the other way around. (Um... the photo speaks for itself).

I'll explain myself--I worked the elements I was sure about first--it's not my fault they were all on the outside! I do know where I am going with this despite all visible signs to the contrary.


I also encountered problems with the upper corners.  After I had them hooked, they didn't appear symmetrical so I have redrawn them and I'm going to make another attempt.  Wish me luck!
