New 2017 Mystery Rug-“WTTPG”-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs-Day 1

Well, you just knew I couldn’t wait to start my new Mystery Rug!   I’ll be hooking a couple of things in January but I was excited to use the wools I pulled out for this…so I made a start before January 1st…!    🙂

I decided to hook something I thought was beautiful…rather a departure for me as “beauty” is not  usually the first thing that comes to mind when I decide upon a design!   I do have a place for this rug already…as I said, I will be sizing my rugs so that I can hang them to replace rugs already hanging in my home.   The changing seasons are perfect for changing the rugs around…so I’ll have fun!

I am experimenting with a border this time…trying out a plaid wool that is a different colour from my plaid background…but not too much!!!   I think my background wool reads as “warm” and the border wool reads as “cool”…so we’ll see how it works.   🙂

Tomorrow I will show you the 2 wool plaids I am using so you can see how they hook up.

So here is Progress on Day 1…Happy New Year Everyone!   And…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. I just couldn’t wait even though I am in the middle of a few “house” projects!!!!!!! …lol…
    I just felt the need to do something “pretty” during these cold days of Winter. Of course, I don’t have to deal with New England winters now but when Joe and I were there, we enjoyed winter and all the snow! 🙂
    Hugs, Sunnie Stay warm!!!!!!!!
