Yesterday was a dreary rainy day. Zip is suffering from allergies. The cats are spending their time sleeping. I washed a few dishes in the morning.
Then spent the rest of the day rughooking!
I just could not wait to see how the maroon border was going to look. There was a book on CD, a cup of coffee, and some chocolate. What more does a hooker need???
I did take a short break to make Zip some dinner, but the rest of the day I worked on the rug.
In my last post the picture didn't come out very true to color. I thought it was because I took it late in the evening in the kitchen where the lighting is best but still not great. So today it's brighter outside. I took the rug to the front porch and tried again. The greens still seem washed out and dull.
Then, duuuuhhhh!!!! I remembered that I have Color Settings on my camera!
I changed to the 'foliage' setting which intensifies the green.
Look at the difference!!!
So check that little book that comes with your camera. I know, they get stored away somewhere and are never seen again! Sometimes these little setting changes can really bring out the best in your pictures.
All the color decisions for the rug are now made. Nothing left but the hookin'!
Hope to see many of you at Grant Street Woolworks tomorrow!
