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.
