Gossip Update

Finally the 'mother feather' has been hooked.  After having hooked the one on the left and saw what was waiting for me, wondered why the heck I hadn't hooked that big mother first.  
Now there are just two birds and the bottom feather to hook.  The original pattern measured 35 x 43 but I extended the length to move the bottom feather down a tad.  Now it measures 35 x 44 1/2

Once the hooking and steaming is complete the binding won't be as dreadful since the fabric has already been stitched on.  There will be a sleeve at the top so the finished rug can be hung on my wall.

The background wool is mostly Irish Eyes (which is reversible) with a few strips of Shepherd's Sheep hooked in random spots.  Both of those came from Heavens to Betsy.  

Hope your day is delightful.
