New Mystery Rug-LIW-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs-Day 8

Quick post today~!!!   I was able to get most of this new section finished last night and did the rest this morning!

Here are the wools, the plaids and herringbones, that I am using for background!   Plus the green/coral/cream plaid I showed you yesterday…the one used on the Bluebird scallops!

I have this section finished…one more section to go and the background will be done.   I’m going back to the motifs too…and the border!   I’m having fun with this experiment…!!!   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. Is it possible to post a picture of the design you are working? It’d be nice to get an overview of what you are hooking. Thanks!

  2. Duh, I forgot it is the Mystery Rug so I guess you won’t post the design until it is done. Well you have me guessing!

    1. HI Jo Anne…yes, when it is a real “mystery rug”, I don’t reveal it until the finish! …lol…
      Nice try though!!!! 🙂

      When I did a couple of commercial patterns on here, I showed the pattern and the information about where to buy it when I started the rug!
      Sometimes I let you know that it has a theme, but a mystery rug is a “mystery” until the finish!

      This is an experiment on using several different light plaid/herringbone wools for a sectioned background…that part is known!!!
      Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂

  3. It looks like a very sweet rug. Are you using all those pale neutral colors on the last picture. It looks very nice.

    Have a great hooking this rug.
    I can’t wait to see it.
    Hugs,

    1. Yes, Julia, I am using those pale colours for sections of the background. I did not want a solid background but I thought it might be interesting to do the background in sections…so I tried the experiment…!!! …lol

      After all, if I hated it I could always pull out the parts I didn’t like!!!!!
      Almost finished…Happy Hooking! Hugs, Sunnie 🙂
