Oh I had this one all figured out in my mind and it was going to be a piece of cake to hook. The lion's face would be a tad lighter than the body, the mane would be a hit and miss much like that done on the border of Olde Hearts and it would have a dark background. Easy peasy ~ in my head.
The face hooking happened as planned. But the mane idea didn't work out; it looked like a hot mess so pulled that out and chose a black and gold texture. Then started hooking the body of the lion. In the photo it appears the top wool is too close in value to the mane. The third wool down seems way too light so think I'll go for the wool texture second down from top. I hooked a smidgen of each wool close to the mane for you to see if you want to tap on the photo to enlarge.
Or, what about red? I'm determined one day to do a red background.
For now I'll work on just the lion using mostly the middle gold wool and perhaps another wild idea for border and background will strike my fancy.
Happy Friday everyone. Sure hope Jose changes direction and doesn't hit the east coast.
