I was asked what wool was used in the goat's head. Actually numerous different colors and values was pulled for the goat itself because I knew my worms would work well for the background.
Heavens to Betsy and The Wool Studio.
Wanna see what Magdalena's Goat looks like now? I've a lot more to do. Must admit that when working on the rug up close the colors look so darn pastel. Yet, looking at the photos up close on my iPad they really are pinks and light blue, etc. But me thinks me will give this a wash of walnut juice when it is all done.
Yeah, wouldn't that be the life?? Just dog companionship, smelling clean clothes and hooking all day. SHEEH, now I know why I LOVE rug camps!!!!!! For my friend (you know who you are Lauren, lol) the dimensions of this rug is 29 x 35.
As mentioned earlier, I was asked if I'd sell patterns of this Magdalena Goat. The answer was yes, but not until after I'd hooked mine so people could see how mine was hooked ~ especially since the antique is so hard to understand.
Moreover, for my personal linen I did very detailed line drawing as you can see. When selling the pattern it won't be as confusing as the one I'm hooking, it will be a more simplistic version.
Okay, back to my duties since the 'nanny' never showed up today.
