Mystery Rug-“Trick or Treat-Halloween”-Sunnie/rug hooking-Day 12

I worked a lot on my rug yesterday but wanted to finish up the top border this morning before posting the pictures!   (and finish more on my bat…!)    Now I’m working finishing up the right hand border and the center motifs and background…!   🙂  

The rug will be finished tomorrow or Saturday…this design has been great fun!!!!!

And…here’s the story of this rug!


“Once upon a time, in a land far away (well, maybe not so far away!!!), two youngsters were growing up.   Cedric’s family was tall, rather thin and many of them had pale faces.   Percival’s family members could become very large (if they lived long enough!) and they were often quite colourful in appearance.

Although it was unlikely, these two became friends and “best buddies” as the years went by.   It was strange to see Percival grow so tall (and so wide!!) and Cedric to lose some height each year.   But that was to be expected…given their family characteristics.   🙂

Percival was rather shy and liked sitting in one place in the garden, soaking up the sun and thinking.   An ancestor of his was a great thinker…and she was known for discovering that wonderful mathematical number “pumpkin pi”…!!!   (we know this formula today…3.1416, or 3 cups pumpkin, 1tsp. cinnamon, 4 cups sugar, 1 tsp cloves, 6 oz evaporated milk, etc.)

On the other hand, Cedric was a real charmer, outgoing, very bright and with a light touch.    His ancestors happened to be in the room in 1966 when “The Doors” a 60’s rock band, introduced their song…”Light my Fire” to the world!   Ever since, when Cedric meets a new lady friend, he can’t help belting out “Come on baby, light my fire” to impress her!”

By now, you have realized that, of course, Percival is Percival Pumpkin and Cedric is Cedric Candlestick!   (and you will have figured out why Cedric’s height decreases and Percival grows taller and wider!!!)

Cedric has finally persuaded Percival to come with him Trick or Treating this year…so, when finished,  this rug is what you will see when you open the door to them!  

Here is Progress on Day 12I do hope that those expecting to see “Tillie the Toilet Plunger” (instead of Cedric Candlestick (!!!!!) will not be disappointed.   …lol…

Well, enough silliness for today…let’s get to the pictures!!!!!!!!!  

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!
