Critique Time

The Magdalena Goat needs to be critiqued off the frame and at a distance.  Working on a rug up close without looking at the whole rug makes it a little difficult to see what changes I might like to make.
Remember that pink under the belly which bothered me before? The pink doesn't appear to be so 'in my face' now that other colors have been hooked around it.

Also, that ugly wool I over dyed.... I hooked a strip of it in the rug and it appears as the center bottom near the edge under the bold red.  Will definitely place a little more of the wool in the rug somewhere.

Sure would like to finish those two unhooked sections this weekend. BUT, my house needs to be vacuumed and really need to work on the weeds where they aren't supposed to be any.



  1. I for one think you should hook and then hook some more, no weeding, no vacuuming, just hooking. I think this because I want to buy the pattern. And I know you want to finish before selling the pattern. So hook on.

  2. Sue is too funny!
    This is a busy time. I've been cleaning up the garden beds for days and still have about 25% to go.
    I think your rug is terrific. You are so close.
    Happy Easter!
    Hugs :)

  3. Your rug looks great Saundra!
    Happy Easter!

  4. Hi Saundra,

  5. Happy easter, saundra! Wow,, you are closing in, looks great!!

  6. Wonderful! The dirt and weeds will still be there when you finish hooking...hook the rug...we all know you want to! Happy Easter!

  7. Wow! It's looking amazing! I don't even notice the pink now that you've hooked more. I say just finish the rug. The weeds and dust aren't going anywhere and will be there when you are done! Happy Easter, Lori

  8. Happy Easter Saundra...this rug is so inspiring to me, the reason I'm hooking the piece on my frame right now...up close it's easy to be critical of are so right about me the pink still stands out, but it helps balance the light blue lines too...

  9. Happy Easter !!!! Sit in the sun & hook away !!!! Eat a few chocolates too !!!! Your rug looks Great !!!
