Grumpy Lions Rug/Sunnie/rug hooking/primitive rug-Day 15

Quick post today…Working around the top of the rug on the first Border and using up a LOT of leftover woolworms!!!!   Hooray!  🙂

I may redo the heart as it does not show up too well…but I can just outline it with a slightly darker strip and it will be fine.

I am also doing what I often do and having a laugh at what pops into my mind when doing a particular rug.   When I started the blue bird (and I have another bird to do!!)   I remembered the song “May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose”!…a goofy song by Little Jimmy Dickens in, I believe, 1965!!!   Of course, then the tune kept running through my mind all day.   LOL  

When looking at my pattern I remembered my Mom saying that someone “looked a little down in the mouth” when referring to someone who looked rather glum…and I had to smile at my Lions expressions!   So rug hooking is also a trip down memory lane for me too!!!   I should name my Lions “Glumm” and “Grumble”!!!

Here is Progress on Day 15…I feel like I am making good time with this rug!   Happy Hooking!  Sunnie  🙂
