Well, somehow it isn't July 6, it's the 7th. And that has been happening a lot lately. The long weekends in there make it worse, but I generally know the day - just not the date.
Since this morning's post, however, I did get the background done in my little portrait. And I am happy with it.
I wonder why I am so much more forgiving with things done in wool than with things done with paint - or even worse (shudder) a camera. I guess this is why I like rug hooking as much as I do. And why I LOVE rendering photos into little "snippets". Capturing a moment without too much self criticism is so much better than the alternative.
Anyway, I am happy with this likeness.
