Update on my Mighty Whale

This magnificent antique rug has been on my 'to hook' list for several years and finally getting around to hook it.  

Am using wool from my obnoxious collection since there are 3 lifetimes of wool on the shelves.  Am not over dying anything ~ will make do with what I have and make it work.
You see those red lines I'm sure.  When first drawing out the pattern I'd considered hooking the INSIDE lines (not exterior border lines) wavy like the original antique appeared in the photo.  But after thinking about it decided to keep the border and inside rug hooked on the straight of grain.  Sure would make it easier for me.

Tomorrow I'm having lunch with my graduating classmates of 1959.  OMG, where did the time go????  Will take my digital camera which is showing signs of failing so hope to capture some photos to share.
