Yahoo!!! I’m really having fun now!!!!!! LOL I’ve stopped trying to do what is impossible on this pattern and having a wonderful time redesigning the motifs for a wider cut and choosing colours that are deep and delightful to work with! Today I redid the tiger face and I think he looks more like cat!! : ) I also did some background and started the tree by the cat. I’m using autumn colours for the leaves and just doing them randomly. I also worked a bit more on the border! : )
Hooray! I’m really proud of my tiger cat now…it wasn’t easy to rework his face but I’m glad I did! : ) It actually is fun to see if I can give the illusion of the features so they are pleasing!!! I think he’s a gentle tiger!!! : )
I’m really having a great time now!!! I love working in the folk art style…it just comes naturally! So I’m redesigning as I go and I think this is going to be a really enjoyable rug!!! Sometimes an unexpected start to a project or a mistake when a company sends your order ends up not being so terrible after all!!!! LOL
I thought you might like to see the changes on the cat face closer!! Here are the before and after pictures!!
Happy Fourth of July tomorrow!! Enjoy!!
