New Hooked Rug-Mystery Revealed!/Day 25~Sunnie

TA-DAH!!!!!!  Now you just knew that “Tom Foolery” would be the only guy who would turn up on one of my silly rugs!!!  LOL

I had been looking at medieval illustrations of jesters, clowns, and fools and found one where I liked the top part of the design!  I adapted it to suit myself and then drew the rest of the rug to give it a “foolish” look.  : )   The border changes also show a touch of “tomfoolery” as he blows, not music but balls (rubber, perhaps!!) from his horn!

A closeup of his funny face (below)… and you can also see the grey/cream plaid background with the tiny touch of blue in it!  ; )

I hope you have enjoyed seeing Tom emerge from the wool and  had fun coming along on this adventure with me!  When I have him steamed, I’ll hang him up and take a better picture!  But at least you can see him in living colour!!!  : )

This rug gives you three ideas for borders on fun rugs. Of course, you might want them more “precise” than mine…I like the random look!!!  LOL
