Sadly I lost a follower today and wonder why that happens. I'm a follower on many blogs but never thought about going back to one and removing my name as a follower. Oh well, c'est la vie.
I've started a Patsy Becker design named Jewel Basket. Actually I hooked this pattern many years ago before I had any wool stash and most what I had was bland non-textured wool. So when spying the pattern at rug camp a few years ago decided to try it again but better colors. As you can see I'm also making some changes ~ what's new.
I've moved the basket down a smidge and will make the flowers larger, might lose a couple leaves during the process so who knows how this will turn out. Will show the other hooked one in a later post after getting more of this one hooked.
And, I have a redux of my boy Ben's Memorial. Here is the after just finished today:
Here is the before.
I'm going to call him done for now. If that eye bother's me I can always pick it up and tweak it. For some reason and some how that eye has a different look now that the wool around it has changed. But am done stressing over it for the time being.
