TRYING TO POST...AGAIN

The other evening, I tried and tried to post on my blog..but the text kept disappearing..then it would show up in the strangest places...oh well..going to try again! This is a rug that I started a little over a month ago. I designed it myself, with the year 1972..the year I was married. It is a tombstone shape, hooked with colors that are not in my usual color palette..but I have become more and more attracted to different shades of blue and ....gulp.....turquoise! I am using a number 9 cut. As you can see..I have two completely different colors for 1972. I couldn't decide it I liked the black or the grey. I'm kind of leaning toward the grey..I think it compliments the turquoise urn..but I'll probably wait until I have completed the background.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Love the mottled wools you are using. Adds a nice movement to it. I'm thinking I like the grey for the numbers too...

Your rug is lovely and even with the turquoise, the colors are still very prim and old looking! I look forward to seeing the finished rug.
Happy spring to you!
