New Hooked Rug-Hooked “Sign”/Sunnie

 

Update…progress on my silly sign with “the guys”!!!  LOL

**************************************************************

Before I get started on my next rug, I’m finishing up a few things!!!

I thought you might enjoy seeing the sign I am hooking for my booth and for any displays I might have with my “funny” rugs!!  LOL

(I have had people asking me for several years why I don’t hook a sign for my booth…and I have a more “sedate” one designed to do later on, but this was too much fun!!)  : )

When I was looking at medieval designs for the idea for “Tom Foolery”, I found several jesters, fools, jugglers and even clown pictures that looked fun to play with!  I decided to do a sign using a couple of figures and played with the design of these two goofy guys!!!!  LOL

This is the top of the rug and I’ll do my lettering below.  I’ll post a picture when I get the lettering done.  (Whoops, I see where I need to take out a bit of the light lavender and put in the darker purple to continue the ruffle on the left figure!)  : )

I had dyed a couple of wool pieces in yellows and apricots so thought I’d use that for a “warm” background!!  The faces were a “hoot” to do…such fun!!!  LOL

Happy Hooking!  : )
