More on Satu

I have hooked another 15 hours into my big mat of Satu the tiger from the Houston Zoo.  I am almost halfway finished.  I have done very little reverse hooking on this piece.  It looks small in these pictures, but it is huge, 36" by 40". 

I wasn't sure that I would like the amount of green and pink that I am adding alongside the oranges and maroons.  But I think the combination is stunning.  I am looking forward to moving down into the neck area and adding the cooler tones to balance the piece.
