HD day 7
Not too much to report today. I got a little hooking done last night and the night before on the lower corners. I'm putting multicolored swirls using some leftover handspun spun yarn I made a couple of years ago as art yarn. The colors are similar to the main ones in the design so I think it's working. I'm continuing with the solid navy sort of background. I will finish this up with 2 row of the pink/lavender/gray fabric that I used in the last row of the inner borders. Going to start in on the rug after I finish this and see if I can get both top sections done and finish the bottom right part.
