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. Hello Sunnie! At the rate that you have been hooking this rug I have no doubt that you will have it ready for display at the Shelburne show. I will look for it! You have made changes to the original pattern to make it your own, and it looks beautiful. Any regrets? I know I love it, but do YOU love it?

  2. Hi Lauri:

    Yes…I really have had such a good time with this rug and have no regrets about redesigning it for wider cuts, changing the border and making it my own! : ) I have learned such a lot!!!! : )

    I was so glad to see the Helen’s Tapestry picture of this rug shown at the Sauder show (I think it was!!!) where the entire rug was done in the original pattern.

    Although I would not have used colours in the same way had I done the original rug, the picture was beautiful and I think the maker did a great job!!!! : )

    I am thinking about my next rug adventure…but it will have to wait a bit as I need to finish my Homestead Primitive and some other things!

    So I hope to have the “Helen’s Tapestry” and the “Bradley Primitive” rugs in the Shelburne show! : )

    Hugs to you, Sunnie : )

  3. Hi Sunnie – I had a lovely browse through your several sites and think this is a masterpiece!! It’s fascinating to see how you adapted the pattern to wider cuts and still kept the design of the original. Wonderful.

    I am on woolsnippets, too and can’t find your autumn glow ‘worm’ rug… where am I not looking? Good luck at the show – wish I could be there, too.

    I’m like you – working on a small project is a nice break from one where you have to think. And the feeling of accomplishment is nice, when a big rug is taking time. Though you are very speedy!!

    cheers, maureen
