"I love red! Pomegranates are red, and with a little research, I found that the bush's flowers are red as well. What more could I want! I was going to MD Shores Rug School with Nancy Blood who has been teacher, friend, and mentor for years. I asked Nancy to plan the rug, using red and some of the newer bright greens. As usual Nancy worked her magic and sent me the formulas to dye, and she laid out the colors.
I began my week with the pomegranate, of course. However, the pattern was drawn as a large oval with several huge seeds. After hooking, rehooking, and rethinking (all euphemisms for ripping out!), I finally, after a full day's work, produced a decent looking pom. Actually, the rest of the rug went smoothly."
