New 2017 Mystery Rug-“A Strange Encounter OTTB”-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs-Day 13

Hooking more background but I was able to hook a couple more motifs today!      🙂

I think the lighter green will do fine…if it fades a bit into the background…that’s OK!   It will just look a bit “wispy”!   …lol…

These two tulips are not outlined either.   I wanted to outline the three tulips on the right side of the piece to add “weight” and make them stand out a little more against the background.   These other three, without outlining, are an experiment.   🙂

As for more about the story behind the rug…how many times have we become confused about directions that someone has given us in a hurry and found ourselves not finding “the place” without some mistakes!  We may have given directions and instructions in error ourselves!!!!!

Sometimes the mistakes may be quite funny too, such as joining the wrong “Family Reunion” at the park because you see someone who “looks” like your Uncle Fred…!   (But he isn’t..!)

So here is Progress on Day 13…I’m about 2/3rds done at this point.   Happy Hooking!   Sunnie   🙂

  1. I’m still trying to figure out the title. A strange encounter of the tiny troll banshee, lol… I know I’m way off but I couldn’t resist. lol.
    Have a great day.
    Hugs, Julia

    1. Hey, Julia…I’ll have to try that tiny troll banshee rug!!!!! …lol…
      It is funny you say that though…the first motif that started me out on this adventure was a little homely figure (like a troll or a gnome) climbing up a stem of something, maybe a beanstalk) in an illuminated manuscript border!!! 🙂
      Hope you are having some Spring today!!! We are having a very windy morning here!!! Hugs, Sunnie 🙂
