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.
