New Rug “Old Crow Farm”-Magdalena-style/Sunnie/rug hooking-Day 11

Aha…another Crow joins the group today!     Crow Number 3!   And I did more background and replaced darker outline strips with light strips around the #2 Crow.    And…I did another Leaf!    🙂

I will change the outer blue strips on my bluebird to be lighter when I hook this afternoon, and will do more background…And adjust the upper right border corner.    I am trying to make each corner just a little different but still about the same!!!!!   …lol…

Also, will check every motif and accent to see if lighter strips are needed somewhere on them.   I am happy with the higher contrast between the background and the motifs…so I’ll go forward with this altered look!

So here is Progress on Day 11…Happy Hooking!  Sunnie  🙂

Here is the redone Crow #2…OldmagdaDay11x







And here is Day 11’s Crow #3…

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 crows are lovely. I did managed to hook a little last evening. It felt good to pull worms and I need to dye some wool for the uniform… I’m still not pleased with my work though. I wish my grandfather’s photo was in color. I have difficulty envisioning how it should look in color.


  2. Julia…I had the same problem with my Dad’s portrait.

    It was in black and white and I didn’t know what he was wearing or his actual colours!!! Since my Mom and Dad were 30 years old when I was born, I knew them as older persons when I was old enough to notice them as “people” and not my parents!!!!! …lol…

    Those early pictures were black and white or sepia tone…not helpful when doing a colour portrait.
    I’m glad you had some time to hook!!! I know you miss it when there’s no time!
    Hugs, Sunnie 🙂
