Sweet William Wallace's update

As promised I am providing an ongoing progression of the creation of my hooked wall hanging of Sweet William Wallace. Now that I have all this wonderful wool to choose from I have found that I don't have any white or cream colored wool and not wanting to wait any longer, have decided to incorporate some homespun yarn for the light color. Seems to be working just fine and works great for his fine furry strands that wander here and there.
I am still lacking a very light peach or apricot color but making do with what I have.

I feel very good about my work in progress so far. He is watching me from across the room beckoning me to keep on going and finish him so he can hang  on his special place on our wall.
Everything else seems to be taking a back burner but I need to get busy on a giveaway prize at one of my favorite boards. Prim Pals
I hope everyone has a great weekend and if you are in the tragic fire zones that seem to be dotting our wonderful country, I hope that you will be safe from harm and that God shines on you and spares you any major losses.
Hugs for my  home to yours.

Well, I have my wool now.

Now I can really get going on my Sweet William Wallace, as I received my wool yesterday in the mail. I feel like a little girl in a toy shop.
I spent a little while working on it last night but kept falling asleep with the hook in my hand so decided it was time to go to bed. I plan on doing a lot of hooking today. Geez , it feels funny saying that. We have been so indoctrinated into thinking there is only one meaning of the word. Oh well, you all know what I am talking about, I HOPE ! ! ! heheh
Check out all this great wool and she cut it all for me too. Now look out Wallace you are going to come to life again.

I got the EYES

I think I am going to have a great time with this as I think I got the eyes just the way I wanted them. They were the most important part, What do you think?
Do I have them?
