Many designers have versions of Jacks and I've admired and hooked a few of them. Although I didn't want to do a fine hooked realistic piece my intentions were to still get the look of a vintage paper mache Jack using a primitive style; I'm using #8.5 strip hooking everything and the dimensions are 14.5 x 25.5 for the piece.
For you newbies just joining my blog you may wonder why I didn't hook the middle Jack first. My learned hooking teachers taught me to hook "what's on TOP first".
Have a great evening and you on the east coast enjoy this low humidity and cooler than July temps.
