Ancient Ornament June Mystery Rug 2014/Sunnie/rug hooking-Day 24

Wow…was the weather hot yesterday!!!!!   We were in the 90’s so I did not hook a lot..!!!   But I did get Some work done…!!!  lol

Quick post this morning…and since it is cooler today (we had 90’s yesterday!!!) I can really sit down and enjoy my hooking!  🙂

If you look at yesterday’s post you will see the same area of the rug but with my additions and changes!  

I did need to hook background and border as well as making those changes to the motif.    You will see that I changed my mind about just having the one line of the deep burgundy on this side of the rug,  and I decided to use some of that burgundy for background here in the upper right just as I did on the upper left.   Sitting back and looking at the rug from a distance is so helpful…I keep saying that but it helps me so much in my decisions!!!   🙂

I started telling you yesterday about the rug and some of what I am doing!  

I have told you about some “conflicts” in the piece and in my designing I decided to add a little (!!!) silliness to the rug and make that conflict quite childish between 6 of the motifs!  The center motif, coming from the celtic design, is a more serious conflict…until you look closely at it.   Then you may smile, as I did, to realize that a peaceful solution is the only way to solve the problem..!   The little naughty bird is playing a rather dangerous game…and if the center problem is solved, he might be “in a heap of trouble”!!!!!

Here is my “Ancient Ornament” Rug  Progress on Day 24…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!

  1. I’m just about useless today again in this sweltering humid heat. It 34 degree Celcius or 93.2 F. here with a high humidity so it feels much hotter. Can’t even guess today. I’m resigned to waiting like a good old girl. But hurry up and get that rug done before I die of heat exhaustion, lol.
