I am notoriously bad at not going to my worm basket when I am hooking unless I am hooking a hit and miss. I just find it easier to pull uncut pieces of wool. This time I was determined to use some of the worms because they just seem to multiply!
I pulled all my lightest value worms and put them in a smaller basket and used these to hook my background. I was going to be very random and just pick one and use it. Well, I'd stick my hand in and pick one and decide that one wasn't "just right" and go in search of a slightly different shade.
Now that I've taken a picture, I see that I need to add a slightly darker value worm or two around the tail feathers and below the breast. I probably used at least a dozen different wools and like the way it turned out. The little mat is about 8 1/4" x 11 1/4".
I can't believe another weekend is over! Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
