Lady Red Jack is ready to be pinned

I finished hooking Lady Red Jack yesterday, and this evening I bound the mat in Nightshade Berry textured wool.  The finished mat is 15" by 19 1/2", so just right to pin into my shadow box tomorrow for the month of September.

I have started to keep good records of the wools I use when I hook my mats.  Here is what I used to create this mat.

Red Jack Palette Wool: 8-value packs of Bittersweet 162, Peter Pumpkin 163, Ellendale Orange 126, Tanglewood 148, and Lake Agate 127; 1 piece of Goodfellow Yellow 105 value 5, Will 'O Wisp 158 value 5; Moorland Moss 106 dappled; 2 pieces of Sunset Gold 104 value 6; Goodfellow Yellow 105 value 7; Black Orchid 146 value 7 and 8; Will 'O Wisp 158 two textures; 4 pieces Nightshade Berry 160 four textures.

Here are pictures of the finished mat and the photo inspiration I used to create the hooked portrait.
