Another rug in progress from Holland

Be still my heart - look what Bea was hooking at Holland Rug Camp!  Her rendition of my Two Sheep and Star pattern makes me smile. From the wonderful background which combines a mixture of textures of rusty tweeds, orange herringbones and many more wools........
to the terrific way she was mixing the wool to give the sheep fleece movement. I had suggested wool yarn or faux pixelating to give the sheep more texture and depth but this rug is going on the floor so Bea was limited in her options for hooking the sheep to make him look realistic. By hooking the wool in a wavy pattern and mixing up the wools, it looks perfect. 
Oh that eye........sigh! 
I can't wait until this rug is finished! Maria

That is going to be wonderful! Such a great variety of colors and textures. And an oval shape too - that's really unusual. Maybe she will add a braided edge??? Then it would be perfect! ;-D

The sheep is amazing--she is choosing her wools so wisely
