Can't Decide?

I can't decide which pattern to put on my rug hooking frame. I love this one by Sharon Smith. These women just being swept away by the wind. There is so much movement in the rug. But this one I think might be a long project. I just received some of her patterns and have more coming in for the website and I know there are others there that I want to do. Sometimes I wish I was 20 again and just discovering rug hooking so maybe I could get all these rugs in my head hooked!  Then again this one from Karla Gerard is a beaut and I could really get this one done quickly.

 I just dyed some antique pink posey wool so might do that colour scheme with a brown background. Also use up some of that robin's egg blue wool

add to that some of the this hand dyed yarn, pink sand, for some added dimension... hmm I think the Bird on the Bloom pattern is going to win out. I've never worked in browns and pinks/blues so that will be a challenge. Besides this one is slotted for a gift for Christmas 2012 so I better get it done now. Who knows what the year will bring!

Have a great evening.. it's a snowy one here. Time to break out the frame and get my cup of hot chocolate..Joni

They are both beautiful rugs and would be wonderful to hook. I have been enjoying hooking again, forgot how relaxing it is.

Oh my! The Karla Gerard one is singing to me! Looks like it would work with any color base.... but, I'm excited to see how yours will look with those great soft pinks! I'll have to put this one on my "must hook for 2012" list! :-)
