I've only just begun the project but thought I'd give you an update on the duck as that is all I've accomplished on the rug so far. However, me thinks some reverse hooking will happen once I compare Magdalena's original to what I've hooked in the body of the duck. There seems to be less teal and too much cream color. Think that will change.
HERE. So it means I need a new master pattern.
Meanwhile I've posted this partly hooked rug on my web site which appears at the bottom of the page. The dimensions are what this one is drawn (17.5 x 27) but will draw whatever size you desire.
