Am excited to show you my update today after looking at it on the floor in person before taking this photo.
There were a couple decisions made as the initial color planning was forming in my mind. One was it seemed to need a balance to the light tallowberries and thought a one line border to outline the rug might do the job. So I chose a black and white honeycomb wool which was purchased from The Wool Studio.
The other first try and happy color choice was that bright orange for the eye. I'm sure many of you questioned my decision when first writitng about it but when looking a the rug on the floor just now my attention went straight to the eye. And hey, aren't we supposed to look our subjects in the eye? Plus, the white of the tallowberries doesn't overpower the rug because 'the eye has it' under control.
There is still more to hook, which is fine and I'll take my time. Also still have the rest of Ned to bind but have a couple eye doctor appointments coming up so will do that while sitting in the waiting room.
My big Ben had his annual physical and senior blood panel last week. Today I was called and the kidney test was slightly elevated and the vet wants to do a sonogram to investigate about something she felt on his spleen. Since Ben had a low grade mast tumor removed in April I need to be diligent on his health follow-ups. Love my boy and want him to stay in my life as long as possible so he goes for the sonogram this Wednesday.
Happy Monday to you all.
