I am so close to having the background around the sunflower done.

Yikes......don't know if I am going to make it or not!  The strips on the left-hand side of the photo are all I have left!

And of course....I don't have anymore of this wool.  

I love the background color.  It's called Faded Ivory from Sun and Wind Farm, 

The piece I used started out lighter on one edge going to darker so I started by cutting and hooking the light color around the sunflower to give it more distinction.  I love how the background gets darker farther away from the flower.   

Hope I make it!!



  1. I hope you make it. Happened to me once and I ended with a half a strip left.

    LOVE IT!!! You have been a hookin' fool. Is there a border around the faded ivory? So what's the next project?
    Pug hugs :)

  3. Oh Karen,
    How pretty is that!!! I love how the background gets darker around the edge! It looks like you may have just enough wool strips! That gets scary when it's so close! Happens to me quite a bit as I never use really accurate methods for how much wool it takes. On a larger rug I would try to have more than enough though!
    Great job!
