Today was a relaxed day not worrying about my grandson's rug BUT did spend time working on motifs and taking some pictures. But do not plan on drawing anything out until the decision is carved in stone.
My little kitty kat is still on my frame and am sloowly and comfortably hooking it taking my time. Follower Jennie asked what size the mat was because she was surprised at my getting the detail of the cat.
WHOO HOO! Really? That was the greatest compliment I could have received...thanks Jennie.
I'm old school so try to use what I have. That is why those fabric strips are sewn onto the edges and to use up my small pieces of linen.
The answer of the size is the design measures 12 1/4 x 17 1/2. The wool used for the cat has only been left over strips for whatever is in my bag. So mostly #8, some smaller and some bigger depending on what grey value I need.
So thanks Jennie, and yes I'm proud to have gotten the detail in a wide cut. That is why I chose to hook my departed Shadow in a #8 after having the intense hooking of my departed Rotties in #3.
For you new followers I'll post a picture of those two rugs on my blog tomorrow. Am really running late so gotta run.
Have a great Sunday evening and we're having another BIG freeze here and it is supposed to be SPRING.
