Progress


Leo is moving right along. Mr. M. mentioned that his eyes are different colors. This was done intensionally...to make him look antique. Karen's original has mismatched eyes also...I like the look.


This photo shows the true colors. Love the green tones!


Color planning as I go...so far, I like the results. I am using Jeanne Benjamin's hand dyed wools...Old Gold & Old Locket...for the body, and here and there in his mane. 

I'm having fun with this big rug...hope I can keep a good steady pace!

Have a great weekend!

Enjoy the day,
Robyn
