More Leo

Leo is moving right along. I  put a row of background around him to get a hint of the finished rug. It seems I always gravitate toward blackish backgrounds on my larger rugs. In this case, I think it will help make Leo stand out. 

I think I will start on some of the flowers this week. The section of Leo that you see here measures 18.5 by 10 inches. To keep from getting bored, I'll play with some color! As I mentioned in a previous post, this is a good size rug and I don't want to lose my momentum.

Welcome to my new followers...and thanks for all the encouraging comments!

Have a great week!

Enjoy the day,


  1. You are making good progress. I love his mis-matched eyes.

  5. Hi Robyn,
    Leo is lookin good! It will be fun to do some flowers for a change of pace. I love the antique dark backgrounds too. Everything just pops. I'm enjoying following along on your progress. It will be a stunning rug. Hugs, Lori

  6. Robyn, Leo is coming along quite nicely. I enjoy Karen's designs and color planning. I had the pleasure of meeting Karen at a rug hooking show which was held at the Shelburne museum in Vermont. The show was amazing with many talented accomplished hookers.BTW, I loved your little squirrel cookie cutter shown in a previous post! It feels like Fall here in Maine today, blessings Julie.
