More work done...

I thought I would show you what I have got done on the rug I started with Victoria Hart Ingalls.As you can see I just had to make my angel a red head and I put a few freckles on her too.
I am using a beautiful soft green for the wings and her dress will be blue.I think I need to work some on her chest now that I have looked a this picture.A 3 cut is not as bad as I thought it would be, so I may try it more.
Live Deeply and sing out loud today.

vickie, she is wonderful. Three cuts scare me to death. All that shading, but that is what makes them look so great. Good job

Vicki, your angel is so beautiful and I love the fact that you made her a redhead with freckles! How cute.

The smallest cut I've ever used is a 5 and I ended up pulling my hair out. Trying a #3 cut scares me to death. Of the patterns that await me in the guest room closet, there's not a single one that calls for a narrow cut, thank the good Lord!! I admire your bravery for being willing to work with that small cut.

She is beautiful and looks just like you!!!! I am finishing the big cat rug (almost there) before I go back and finish my tulips. The Victoria is sending me the Iris and Henrietta's Garden...I kind of liked the 3 cut...enough that I ordered a 3 cut cutter and find hook from Frasiers...

Now Ladies....don't be afraid....what you end up with is a picture that you have painted with wool...it is not so bad or too hard...just take a class with Victoria or another fine hook teacher and away you go!

Love and light,
Mindy...

Vicki, I'm comin' to Eureka to hook with you too! Maybe we'll meet if I can come to the hook-in in June. I'll NEVER do a three cut! I just ordered a #9 blade.
