Look at your rug as if it were the first time. Put it in a prominent place where you will see it in good light first thing in the morning. Ask for feedback from people you trust but remember friends find it hard to criticize, so ask them to truly be blunt. If you don't have anyone you trust, look at your work through a mirror or take a photograph . A black and white photo will make the contrast (or lack of)obvious. Amazing what you will see. Then you can work to improve your rug. Remember that every rug is not going to be perfect, ever. This is especially true if you have been hooking for only a few years. Otherwise, you will be very disappointed when you look back some day at the work you have done early on.
