New Mystery Rug-August 2016- “E or R”-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs- Introduction

“It was a time when the night was just beginning…And we wondered if what we thought we saw was real.”


And so begins the story of “E or R”…a Mystery!


I am almost through with the design drawing on the linen and will take today to prepare the backing for hooking.   

This piece is rather large 39″ x 49″ and it will be hooked in #3, 4, 5 and 6 cuts of wool strips.

  I believe I have decided upon the background but will have to try the two predominant wools out to see if they will work.   One is a blue plaid and the other is a dark blackish wool with traces of deep blue and deep green.   There are hand-dyed blending wools of dark green/black. 

This piece will be a “mystery” to me also because although I have drawn the basic design out, I am already tweaking it and fiddling with it before I have even started the hooking!       🙂

So what this experiment actually looks like when finished is Really a mystery to me…and we’ll see if it works!!!!!    I believe I told you about this way of working when I did the “Painted Mermaid” rug with the creative doodles.   The finished rug did not look much like the design I started with…but it was so much fun to change things as I went along that I decided to try it again!!!!

So I will now get back to work on this so I can start hooking!!!!   Happy Hooking To You…and I hope you will enjoy this journey with me into unknown territory!   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!
