New 2018 Mystery Rug-“…ATBTC”-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs/folk art-Day 8

Quick post today…….Hooray!   I was able to do quite a bit of hooking over the weekend…!   🙂

However, about 4 hours of that was on a part of a motif that is about 6 inches square!!!!!!!   …lol…   and that you can’t see yet.   That’s what happens when I use a #3 and #4 cut.   🙂

I did get some more background and Sunflower hooking done as well as part of a fish.   I know you were just waiting for me to hook a fish…yes?   So I am!!!!!   I decided not to do the fish scales as they were just distracting…so I am hooking a couple of mottled blues on this fish.   I am not sure why the fish is grinning…maybe he knows something we don’t…!

Another of my experiments is with realism and with fanciful motifs.   It is combining a bit of realistic presentation within a fanciful design.   It might just be a so-so experiment…but I am having fun with it.   It just takes me longer to do something with which I am not familiar!   (And those tiny strips can drive me nutty if they shred…!!!!!)

So here we go with Progress on Day 8…hope you are all having fun with your rug hooking or whatever in the world you are doing today!!!!   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!
