July 2014 Mystery Rug/HF&F/Starts this week!-rug hooking/Sunnie

As often happens, I had a few designs that I was considering for my next rug and had just about decided when I realized that with this hot weather (!!!) I did not want to use my brain very much..!!   lol   I wanted something to do that I did not have to think about…just to enjoy.

Sooo…I did what I often do in these situations.   I got out my notebooks of past design “scribbles” (on napkins, envelopes, pieces of scrap paper, etc.) and while going through them I waited for something to jump out at me!    🙂

Since I wanted to do another “De-worming” rug, I took 2 of my sketches, put them together, added a couple of things and “Ta Dah!!!”…I had the main part of my design!   I will design the border as I go…but it will not take much brain power to do that.

I’m not experimenting, trying for a certain effect or working on something serious!!!!   I have that plaid wool that I wanted to use and I’m going to try it here.   If I don’t like it on this piece, at least I’ll see how it hooks up in small areas as a background!!!!!   lol

You won’t have to use Your brains very much either as you follow along on this rug!   So we will all get a rest..!

I’ll work on getting my design enlarged and transferred to the linen today or tomorrow and see if I can get started…I want to get hooking once again!!!   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!
