Bizy Bea is still not giving up her attraction for this rug!
As you can see I did not even take this rug off the frame and lay it on the floor this time to photograph.
The minute I spread out the end of the rug she got up and came over to get on the rug and wasn't going away! So strange.....
As you can see I have kept the original intent of Polly's design but have swayed off in a variety of directions with the colors and flowers. I've added several extra flowers plus leaves as I was hooking along, changed the design of the flowers and didn't pay too much sway to the fact that the original design had ALL the flowers looking the same.
By the time I was ready to start the border I decided I had worked on this rug long enough and wanted to keep it simple and get it finished so I opted for the random strips of colors or "hit and miss" rather than the design in the book with a darker navy border of three rows.
I am working on the border and then it's on to the backside to do the stitching of the hem.
I was trying to "shoo" her away but she wasn't having any of it from that look!
Almost lost her focus with an itch!
Messy work area. Bizy still standing guard over the rug!
Bizy not going away!
It will be interesting to see how she behaves once the finished rug is laid on the floor in front of the TV. Will she take up permanent residency? We'll see.....
Almost finished. Hooray.
Have more fiber activities I'm going to pursue over the next couple of months - more to come about that over time.
Bizy finally grabbed up her ball and said "Enough with the computer and the photos - time to go play BALL!"
