Rustic wall hanging, new animals

Wove this with single hand spun yarn for the warp and it punished me as expected, with breaks and sags - but it rewarded with it's softness and pliability - and it is more regular in shape than I deserve.
The colors in the top image are truest to how it looks. It's a very rustic flower not smooth and well finished looking like the one in Betty Linn Davenport’s book, “Rigid Heddle Weaving”, a transparency Inlay project - but it does feel nice.
I've found a spot for it in the hall.

Now, new animal arrivals :

Here's the persian-style ginger cat who showed up in February - stuck up a tree in the garden . He's taken up residence in the garage - so no more rodent problems there - YES!

Here's a hen with a headache - she was attaceked upon arrival by the mature white loghorn and virtually scalped!
She's done well since in the porch with bandages and a bit of TLC@
