New Hooked Rug – Day 21

Photo Just Added! – Answer to a request to photograph the rug outside!!!  This photo below is in natural sunlight!



It’s been really an extra joy to work on this now that the outer leaf colour has been chosen!!!   Since all the major colour choices have been made, it is easier to look at the other motifs and see if I need to change a bit of wool here and there to tie the borders in with the center…or if all is OK!

Even though I usually have a “vision” of the completed rug when I start one,  I never really know how the colours I’ve chosen will work together!  LOL  I think I know…but it is sometimes a real surprise!!!!  : )



I thought I’d work more on the leaves in the golden brown border for awhile and then go back to the black background and some of the smoky blue border!!  : )

Happy Saturday!!!  : )

I am a folk artist now living in Vancouver, Washington. We loved our Vermont "Old Crow Farm" but now I live in a little cottage with a bright yellow front door! I no longer have my business but still love designing and hooking rugs and experimenting with colour...! I do "mystery rugs" on my Blog and that is great fun!

  1. Hi Kathleen! I really like the colours too…makes the rug a delight to work on. : )

    I often spend a couple of hours on the rug each day and sometimes 4 or more hours if I’m watching the news, etc. in the evening…and decide to work on the rug while I watch/listen!!!

    If I go to Hooking Group on Tuesdays, I spend at least 3-4 hours of that time hooking!!

    Hugs to you, Sunnie : )
