I did end up changing the background and I am very happy with it. 

I am only using one color wool because the rest of the rug is so busy and I could not find anything that I liked with it.  I am going to do an outer border of dark multicolor wool, which should anchor the design.  I am hoping to get some more done today, although I really should be folding the laundry...

Rug Camp Day 2 , 3 , & 4

On Day 2, I did a bit of the background, the leaf, corner clamshell and the orange
 dogish animal on the left side of the picture.  I was not sure about the background, so I decided to hook all of the animals and then decide.

This is what things looked like at the end of Day 3.  I got the horse, the snake, the blue bird, a heart and another leaf done.

And this is what it looks like now.  With the exception of the hen, all of the animals and the heats are done.  I am still wavering on the background and will have to put it aside for a few days.

I had a great time at Rug Camp and met some really wonderfully talented ladies.  I have already registered for next year and look forward to seeing everyone again in the near future.
