HOOKED CROWS

BACKGROUNDS STUDY

Another of Magdalenas  beautiful designs hooked up by Evelyn Lawrence . . 
I am fascinated with the backgrounds and how the contrasts are created with slightly different values using, I assume in the original rug , whatever clothing was at hand.
Who would have thought to add the bit of red on the birds wings? . . .then let it dance a little throughout the entire rug? I love looking and looking at this rug . . . .
Off to the McCord museum to Grandparents Day with the little ones to let them learn how to look at life and things  around them  . 
Then home for cocoa . . . .on this cold ,but SUNNY winter day .  . . . . . .
