New BBB Mystery Rug/Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs-Day 16

Quick post today…and a wish for a very Happy and Safe Thanksgiving for my American friends and family!  🙂

When I started this rug, I did not have a “real” title for it as I wasn’t quite sure exactly what I was going to do with my sketched design!!!!!!!   So I simply gave it an identifier… “BBB” for Bluebirds, Bluebirds, Bluebirds!!!!!   …lol…

But after my final decision on the center design, I decided to call it  …”Joy is A Bluebird Morning!”   And today’s picture is the start of my hooking on the “sun”!!!   I wanted it to look like a “sunflower” in the sky…looking “warm and sunshiny”   (!!!)    but not standing out too much from the background!!!!  So I’ve used a little brighter yellow and an orange-spot-dyed wool for the sun.

So we will see if this start works with the rest of the design when I have the background all filled in.   I used the center hand dyed orange wool to hook small “sunspots” in the background…I will see if I like them when I get more done!

Here is Progress on Day 16…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. Your sun is fantastic and so original. I love it. I’m sure it will look perfect with your background and those happy little bluebirds.

    I’m not sure if you’ll post tomorrow but I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving with your family.
