Noah's Ark Rug Progress!

I have been working a bit at a time, on my rug and finally finished the middle section. This was a kit from Mad Hen Primitives that was gifted to me by a friend. I love being able to hook without having to worry about picking colors or cutting the strips, just enjoying the process of hooking and watching the design evolve.

The bad thing is, I ran out of background colors and had nothing that matched her strips, so I just added what I had. The flash really popped out the colors, so hard to see how it looks in a photograph. Now all I have to do is the outer animals and a dark border background. I do have the strips, so I hope I don't run out, but it is easier to match up darker wools.

My friend Cyndi who gifted me this wonderful rug is down sizing her stash and has a lot of wonderful patterns for sale on EBAY right now, if you want to take a look.

I was given the canvas for a rug but no wool or instructions. I have wool I can cut up but how close does one hook? Is it every 2nd.hole or further apart. One day I'll do it. I love your Noah's Ark. The colours are great.
