My Rug Camp Rug Post 3
I am adding one more post on my rug from Cambria Pines Rug Camp, then I'm going to highlight the other/better half of the household which is Larry's rug from camp in my next post.
At the present moment I have decided to put my Corgi dogs antique rendition aside and I will continue work on it at my next camp: Hooker Hill Rug Retreat http://www.woolpoppies.com/
In this past week I've made some changes to the rug, before setting it aside.
I am satisfied with how I've hooked Gracie into my rug but Piper has been through about 4 transitions in his face.
The first face was very cutesy and had a heart shape to it. My friend Gail noticed the heart shape first, then it stood out to me once she asked me if I had intentionally hooked the face with a hidden heart. Some people do this - adding hearts into their rug in a sort of hidden way. While I like the idea of doing this it was not intentional and I actually wanted to reduce Piper's cutesy look.
Here are the changes Piper's face has gone through after version one above.
