Pomegranate Background

"Two Pomegranates"

The design elements are hooked on this mat, so time for the background.  I thought a dark background would make the fruit and leaves "pop", but I didn't have enough wool to cover the area. I dug in the stash and came up with a black wool and two different plaids which I then dyed with olive green and black, and this gave me pieces close in value. I feel that using these different values and hooking in flowing curves lends motion to the background.....a little more spirited.
