At least all the motifs are hooked now and it is the interesting background that Magdalena was so well known for left to hook. Actually, that is exactly the reason the backgrounds of the Magdalena designs aren't and really are fun to hook. Here's what the rug looks like taken on the back porch in natural evening light.
Since my back is healing there's yard work and grass cutting in my forecast tomorrow; so not sure when another loop will be pulled other than maybe over coffee tomorrow morning as I plan my day.
Have a great evening everyone and hope you had a chance to get outside and enjoy the low humidity and perfect breeze and temps.
