This is what has been accomplished on the rug so far. Not nearly as much as I'd like but then the nice weather has allowed me to do some necessary yard work in comfort.
EEK, will I have enough brown ground wool to cover the area at the bottom? With the remaining brown left in the kit I folded and placed in areas, plus the wool strips to the right of the picture just MIGHT be enough to finish. The standard primitive wide cut used to be #8 but now the 'go to' primitive strip is #8.5 or sometimes even a #9. So when I use those cuts it is only natural to pull loops up higher which uses more wool than the #8. In the event I do run short of a smidge of wool will just pull out loops in random areas and rehook with a similar color from my stash. I've done that with other rugs before so shouldn't be a problem.
Here's a photo to show the wool sent for the fence and what I chose to use instead. The wool on the left is an overdyed dirty white sent with the kit but thought it might be too white. I'll save that for a snowman for next winter's hooking project. Instead used another wool, that to the right. If you would like this pattern or kit please contact Tonya (MadHenPrims) from whom this kit was purchased. I am lucky to own several Tonya hooked pieces, have hooked numerous patterns of hers, still have some in my stash and love her designs.
