A BLUENOSE ADAPTATION
I still love these simple scrolls done here in my first rug started at rug school in Nova Scotia with Kaye Magwood in the 'Heritage' class . . . .
all I remember was I did not know about SCORING the pattern on the backing FIRST . . .. and because of the straight lines in the background I therefore had a real problem and had to start all over and redraw everything on the other side . . .thus . . . I bore my students to death with the importance of scoring (putting the pattern on the straight of grain)before hooking!
These colours were also my first attempt at dyeing . . . .took me weeks to figure out how to get the colours I wanted . . .ended up over dyeing tons of grey flannels as I remember to get soft colours . . .
