That is what I said to myself at this point. However did read on Facebook where someone had pulled every loop from a hooked rug because her choice of colors had changed over the years.
But I decided I had gone beyond the point of no return and would keep hooking and then see what minor changes to make. The photo above and this photo below were taken with one camera.
Not wanting to rip out the whole dang horse it looks like if I concentrate on the too dark head it might make it more similar to the original. Albeit different color choices. But remember Saundra, this is just an antique adaptation AND the person who hooked the original used what she had anyway; so don't sweat the small stuff.😞 So just reverse hooked and replaced a couple strips of wool on the horse's head. Not perfect maybe but will now work on the background and border. Will reevaluate the situation later.
