Another Update

Yesterday afternoon Denise sent me a current photo of her Granny (Kate) Donaldson rug adaptation.  It appears she is going with a softer/neutral background color and am sure everyone will enjoy seeing the various  choices each of us decide. 
Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) is moving right along on her rug too.  How perfectly round those little faces are ~ Lauren and Denise have set the standard high.  Visit her blog to see the wonderful wool which made this tree and her comment on the child in the rug.
And now for my update.  As expected Lauren and Denise set the standard of perfect faces high and I didn't pass.  And, why can I not take a straight photo?  It always seems to be lower on the right side and the camera also has a delay so guess my waiting, holding my breath, etc. makes my arm slip down.
Honestly I did replace that orange leaf but the one above still looks too bright.  Perhaps I need to hook the leaf in the middle and see if it mellows out.  Here's the before.
It was frigid today and silly me decided to walk the mile (to and fro) to get the mail with the cold wind whipping.  Temperature was 28* F (-2 Celsius).  A little more snow predicted here but thankfully not as much as the 12" received previously.  But it is COLD.  I made a big pot of Minestrone soup yesterday so that and a salad will be my dinner.

Happy Friday and happy hooking.



  1. Loving all of the adaptations! I like the leaf color now. We had cabbage soup yesterday and today I made a big batch of lasagna which we will have again for dinner tomorrow night. Have a great weekend! Janice

  2. The updates are all so well done. Everything is perfection. Your new leaf is looking just fine to me. I'd leave it there until the rug is finished and then decide. It is an improvement.

    The soup is just what I like on cold days. It's cold here too.
    Stay warm and safe.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. Whole lot of perfect hooking going on. Yikes! Glad I'm not in this challenge LOL. And I see nothing whatsoever wrong with your face. Cold here too...-27º here this morning. Yeah, I looked at the temp and went back to bed. I was going to make split pea soup today but ran out of I will do it tomorrow. Did you do the minestrone recipe I posted? Or your regular minestrone?? Stay warm....~Robin~
