Getting Close But Not Done Yet

On the surface it appears that I'm close to finishing the hooking part of the challenge rug.  BUT, when putting the rug on the floor for a photo I'm not happy with the border.  The border doesn't flow nicely but rather harsh in some areas.

And not sure about the sky colors ~ whether to do lighter in areas for cloud like formations or do a more lavender dark.  But then in real life there are all those colors in the sky which we can see from our yard at any given moment.  

Here it is.  The sides and bottom wavy border I can live with.  But the top is not smooth enough for me from the red house to the right of those daffodils ~ that's too jagged.
So who knows what this will look like next time you see it.  But at least it is close to the finish.  Hope everyone had a great Easter Sunday.



  1. You are your own worse critic. I think it looks great. I haven't even started mine...sigh.
    Hugs :)


  2. Love how it looks, but agree, the top needs to be more wavy, too much jag compared to the other sides.


  3. I love it,,, would not have notice the border if u had not mentioned it,,, but if it bothers u ,,, change it,,,, I love the sheep and houses and ur background,,,, take care,,,,

  4. I love it so cute I am hoping to get some good hooking time this weekend at a hooking retreat I am taking a rug I started but never finished

  5. I think the pattern is really cute! Yep I would have to fix that border too!!

  6. A tiny teeny tweak and it will be perfect. Your daffodils are awesome and they look real with the proddy centres, Love that sheep wool. It's a great rug.
    Easter Blessings,

  7. I think your rug is delightful Saundra! It's all great but I especially like the flowers!

  8. Hi Saundra,
    I just adore your rug but know that no matter how many tell you it is wonderful, YOU have to be the one to live with it, so do those little changes to be happy!!! I just LOVE the sheep and the flowers! The wool is PERFECT for both of them and they are AMAZING!!!
    Wonderful job, as always!
    Warm Hugs~
