New Hooked Rug-Day 6/Sunnie – Magdalena-style

Coming right along and redesigning as I go!   🙂 

Because I am using narrower cuts than Magdalena Briner Eby did on her rugs, my first drawings had motifs pretty close together!  As I go along and am now freely grabbing #8 cuts as well as the narrower cuts, I am having to move some of my motifs to give space around them.   I am even sketching more freely as I am simply trying to draw primitive outlines of the animals and leaves, etc. and not worry about them!!!  They are what they are!!!  LOL   I had quite a bit of time to hook yesterday and this morning…so pretty good progress!!!    🙂

Of course, this is not the size that many of the members of the Magdalena _Style group are hooking…mine is probably smaller at 24 x 24 inches!!!

Here is progress on Day 6…

 Having lots of fun!!!   LOL      I’m off to hook today with the Saturday Group at Brenda’s Quilters Quisine shop!  Hooray!

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!
