I’m glad Ray isn’t one to take afternoon naps! My ‘hooking clutter’ on the bed is growing as I work on the ovals and circles in the background.
Ever since I began hooking Adele, I’ve debated about what to do about the left eye (her right eye). Would I leave it? Would I change it? If so…how?
The final decision was made at my Sunshine rughooking meeting last Tuesday, when Cathy Smith pointed out that a human eye doesn’t show any white under the iris (unless looking way up). I decided to change it…I didn’t want her looking up with only one eye.
Here’s the original eye
What both first looked like
This picture shows what the eyes looked like after I added the eyelids.
I took out the iris, the pupil, the white of the eye, and the black top line. I moved the black top line down and added another row of the lid colour, then re-hooked the eye.
New ‘left eye’
Both eyes now…
I’m still in my ‘I’m not sure I like it’ phase….but I’m hoping that will pass!
Meanwhile I’m continuing with the ovals and circles.
Boy! It takes a lot longer to hook circles than any other shape!
