If at First You Don't Succeed......

......Try, Try Again.  That was just one of my Parent-isms so wisely told to me in my youth which we all tend to pass on from generation to generation.  And try again I did and will have to try once again.

Even tho I made what I thought was the appropriate adjustment to Shadow's jaw line can see (now that it is hooked in, that it still isn't right.  Not only that but can see darker wool is needed near the eye below and to the right of the very dark that is hooked in.  OMG, perhaps my downfall is placing the photo right beside the rug to make the comparison.  I mean, if I didn't have that photo butted up against the rug I'd think it was Shadow.  But the truth is the jaw is still too large.

So this picture doesn't have the photo next to it, but you can scroll down for the comparison yourself.  Guess it's time for my Long Island Farm to go back on the frame for comfort hooking.
And I've put a picture of a Santa below which Kara inquired about.  She saw it on a previous blog post and inquired if it was still for sale.
Kara, I was unable to respond to your blog inquiry since you have a "NO REPLY" Blogger.  That happens when you sign up for blogger but you don't put any identity as to e-mail address.  If you are reading this and still interested, it is for sale and can read about it on my web site HERE.  So you can write me personally at if interested.  But just know that unless you go to Blogger and provide an e-mail address no one can reply to any request or comment you make.  I believe that is a little known fact that numerous people aren't aware of.

So, guess what I'm going to place back on my Snapdragon?  You got it!  A comforting wide cut primitive.

Have a great evening folks and stay warm.  Well at least it isn't raining or snowing.



  1. Well...I think Shadow looks terrific!
    There were white icy balls falling from the sky here. ACK!!! Tomorrow Jake and I are going to Boo at the Zoo. It's supposed to be dry but cold. Time to get out the UGGS!
    Hugs :)
