Farmer in the Dell update . . .

 I'm working steadily on the "Farmer" rug.  I had to re-hook the little mouse to make him smaller and I added highlights to the tree.  The highlights makes the tree show up against the dark sky. 
 I also added highlights on the little boy.  I'm not happy with his face.  It is so difficult to get the right feel of expression in such a tiny space.
Working on the border and finishing up the wording, then I will hook the Farmer and his Wife.  I'm re-thinking the little stars.  A suggestion was to make them have points like the bigger ones and maybe in the yellow.  I just don't want to clutter up the sky.

Happy Hooking!


  1. This is going to be a really fun rug when you get it all finished up! I'm amazed at the detail you've managed to get on such small items - impressive!

  2. Your Farmer in the Dell rug looks beautiful and I love how you did the background. The colors are great too.
