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. Hey Sunnie…I know you did the inside part with smaller cuts, but are you doing the border in #8 cut? Just wondering. It’s looking so good. Do you know where you’ll place this rug? Me? I wouldn’t want it on the floor…course none of my rugs are on the floor. Ohyeah, my big a** star one will be.

  2. HI Jacque! : )

    I’ve done the whole rug in #4, #5, #6 and #8…using the smaller cuts for the detail work and sticking in #8 when I can get away with it in the background or tree trunks or (?)!!! LOL

    The border is done in #6 and #8…with an occasional #5!!! : )

    I’m soooo glad I didn’t leave the border until last!!!!! : ) As you know, it is hard for me to follow ANY pattern exactly…so doing these border motifs – even though each one is not perfectly formed but more “freewheeling (!!!) LOL is not easy for me! But I’m happy that I am learning some discipline in my hooking!!!! LOL

    I’d like to sell this rug as I didn’t really do the rug for me!! : ) We have a very small farmhouse with not a lot of wall space in our little rooms…so it would be nice to find someone who would enjoy having it! : ) I’ll also put it in the Green Mountain Rug Show at the Shelbourne Museum in November in Vermont.

    I think your star is delightful…and it sure is big!!!!! LOL
    Hugs to you, Sunnie : )
