New Mystery Rug TYF-Day 8/Sunnie – Rug Hooking

Boy, did I hook leaves yesterday!!!!!  And got rid of a LOT of green leftover woolworms!!!!!  LOL  🙂

Also, I am surprised at the amount of wool I am using for the background!  When I look at the design, it doesn’t seem like there is a lot of background to do…but I have gone through 1/2 yard of background wool already!!!   (background is all done in a #6 cut)

Good thing I always have either a lot of the background wool on hand before starting a project… or I mix several wools together …OR…I leave spaces in the background so I can add a wool similar in value if I am short of my chosen wool.  By doing this, I never have to worry about running out of background wool..!!!!!  🙂

Here is Day 8…you are beginning to see things that actually make sense…yes?  LOL

Sunshine in Vermont today…but we are looking at more snow!!!!   I’m staying inside (except for filling the bird feeders (!!)…and hope to get some hooking time in today!  At least, I’ll pull Some loops today!!!!  Happy Hooking!  Sunnie  😉

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!
