(Zombie) Jack's Crow ~

The hooking is finally done on Jack's Crow.  I think Jack looks like a zombie :)  

I'm not sure how I am going to finish it.  Terri did this fun finish on hers.  It looks like it would be easy and fast to do.

It was suggested I hook my initials in this funky little rectangle.  I tried . . . and I tried . . . and I tried again but it just didn't look right so I gave up :(

The pattern can be found here.

I was scheduled to have a class with Laurie Lausen of Wooly Red Rug at the end of September through a guild I belong to.  No surprise that it has been cancelled.

Well, "old blogger" came up so this post is being done with it.  I need to figure out where "new blogger" went . . . sigh.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
Pug hugs :)

I like your Jack. Think I might have to do this one too. I do like the finishing idea! I am a sucker for Fall themed projects.

Love your jack, funny how no matter what the design looks like, each of us do a slight change and it becomes our own, especially on faces. I went back to old, the new one has too many confusing things on the pages.

Eye centers are way too bright.
Remember to not let anything "bullseye" on a rug no matter the design. The eye must travel around like visualizing the "s" curve.
Try some old gold and see how it changes the effect. Otherwise its a great little mat and excellent hooking techniwue. Also white, blue and black are very difficult to put into a rug.
You might want to change his shirt...but the "eyes" are the real culprit.
Good luck!

Great colour choices! We are planning a Europe trip for next summer. Doubtful even about that

great joke! I like jack I did buy him and couple of others from her. I hate the new blogger maybe they were trying to fix the issues.

I love, love, love your Jack!! Zombie??? Well, perhaps a bit....but I have a soft spot for zombies LOL. Still trudging away on The Beast....and haven't even allowed myself to think beyond that at this point. Huge sigh. ~Robin~

I love him!! That finish would be perfect but I'd use black and as always, great great background. Too bad this isn't charted for cross stitch.

Love that little mat. I think maybe Jack is afraid he is going to be infected by covid since he has no mask.

Well keep posting those jokes. I just laugh and enjoy making fun of the situation we find ourselves. I think Jack is wonderful. I don't think he looks like a zombie. Its a very cute rug though. I am so sorry another hook in was cancelled. I really wish I could hook like you. I hope you have a great day.
