You may recall this is a design I adapted from two antique rugs similar but chose elements from both to make it more to my liking. Must say that I do wish I'd made the rug a little larger because I am using #8 cut on most of it but #8.5 on the background.
NOW, I need a little help from my friends and would love your input. Take a look at the top and bottom right corners and tell me which looks best.
Plus I plan to make a change in the male lion's mane and remove the under hooked part of the mane and make it more straight rather than rounded at the bottom.
Oh, and you probably noticed that I'm using the wide binding, a product I posted about on a previous post. It really looked fantastic on a Polly Minick rug and I inquired where she purchased it and bought a roll for myself. The binding comes in different colors and it really makes the rug stable and straight. Not to say that I'd use this for all my rugs but on this one the hooked border will be dark so it will work great.
Naturally today was time spent with my son, daughter-in-love Cathy and my grandson Zach. So I snapped a picture of my son and grandson playing with toys and just wonder who likes toys more.... father or son???
Here is Zach assembling a Lego village. It will be interesting to see what he brings here to entertain himself with from all his new Christmas gifts. Grandma has things here for him to play with but after all..... he has all these new toys which he will want to have here tomorrow.
My grandson will be spending the next couple days with grandma while school is out and parents work to make money for next year's Christmas and to pay bills for the upcoming year.
Hope you all had a peaceful and loving holiday however you celebrate.
Happy Birthday Jesus.
