An update, but wish it was further along. As usual I did some reverse hooking and in a couple small spots more than once. Sure can't move forward if I'm always walking backward.
The regular readers know this is an adaptation of a rug originall hooked in the 1800s by Magdalena Briner Eby so this info is for you newbies just beginning to follow my blog.
Still don't have the geometric fully bound but I'm working on that too....uh, ever so slowly.
