Rug Hooking Detour Back on Track

Was determined to update my boy Ben because there's only two weeks before rug camp.  It was difficult to determine if I was making fair, good or great progress until the entire area was hooked, including background.  So here goes the new tweaked version.
And the results just after rug camp last September.
You will  noticed I flattened the top of his head and shortened the muzzle.  Also pulled two loops from the collar.   Now I'm happy to show the rug at Cape May.  I'd have been too embarrassed to present that as my hooking and quite frankly would have been embarrassed for Ben.  Am happier with the changes made to the snail as well.

The rug was designed by Nola Heidbreder and I changed it to a Rottweiler.  Here is a photo of the original pattern as shown on Nola's web site.
Now I can get back to the hearts.



  1. So much better. You are really good at this!

  2. He looks much better with the shorter muzzle.

  3. Glad u are happy,,, I see the difference, too!
    Bet ur getting excited for rug camp!
    Have good weekend!

  4. Funny how little things make the biggest difference. Glad you got it to your liking.

  5. I am glad you are happier but to be embarrassed by your hooking! Never you are a master.

  6. Hi Saundra,
    The changes you made, though minor, really do make a huge difference and the rug really is wonderful!! Only you would really notice those things, but seeing the two results side by side shows how much better the new version is!!! Great job! You did Ben proud!!
    Enjoy your week!
    Heart Hugs~

  7. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the muted colors you chose. You have such an amazing talent!
