….very simple and basic….random wiggles in off white….
….surrounded with the white. I like it. It doesn’t take away from the “black and white” aspect, but gives some life to the background. I’m using a #4 cut, I haven’t done a background in that small a cut for years! (and it will likely be years more before I do it again too!)…it’s a slow process.
I plan to hook two or three rows of black around the outside in a 6 cut to form a more definitive border. Notice the drawing to the left of his body….that was a shadow…which I partially hooked, then took out since I thought it didn’t add anything to the piece. He’s now “shadow-less”.
OK…now for the ‘confession’ part. I’ve had a pretty productive winter as far as hooking….but the number of pieces totally completed???? ZERO! That evasive finishing.(sigh). Here’s what I’ve hooked since last fall….
So right now, I committing myself to start NOTHING new until I have all of these pieces (including Sir John) completely done. (sigh)….but….but…but…
