New Mystery Rug coming soon!-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs/folk art-designs in progress!!!!! :)

Can’t believe it is almost March…the time just flies by when you are having fun!!!! 

 I’m getting my home decorations, etc. ready for Springtime and that means putting away the deeper colours and getting out the lighter, more “Springtime” colours.   Home decor is fun too and I always enjoy decorating for the Seasons.   🙂

I am busy steaming and getting ready to edge-finish my Cat rug and enjoying it myself!!!   …I feel greatly blessed to be able to enjoy such a fun art-craft…one that gives me great pleasure!!!   🙂   I hope you all have something that brings you fun and enjoyment too!!!

I am working on several designs that I’d like to do but haven’t settled on one quite yet.   But even the design process and the “thinking” is a pleasure.   So many ideas to explore. 

 I haven’t done a “Creative Cutting” rug for a long time…this one was a hoot to design and hook.   I just cut different shapes out of copy paper and arranged them on rug backing to see if a design would emerge.   Some of the paper pieces reminded me of vegetables and leaves…and “Dancing At The Vegeta Ball…” was born!!!!   This method really tests your creativity as there isn’t much to start with except shapes.   But if you are experimenting…it is really fun to do!!!   (Also, I love plays on words…so this one did that too!)






Often, I try something quite different after working on a rug with a very distinctive style…so we’ll see.   However, the freestyle folkart rug is always a favourite of mine so I don’t know if I can resist doing one!!!   

Hope you are having a lovely day…I will keep working for a few days (and resting after that marathon of hooking too!!!!!)   …lol…   and then get started on the next adventure.   

Often, I find a colour that I want to use and that dictates the flavour of my design.   I have a lot of the darker plaid wools from my “primitive” hooking days…but I might be looking to lighten up for Spring!

I also have a Chairpad Challenge on Rug Hooking Daily…and a “Soul Selfie” Challenge there too.   So I’ll be busy…but happy too.


Happy Hooking…see you soon, 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. Oh my goodness Sunnie, you are keeping so busy. I’m making very slow progress on my Rock-A-Bye- Baby rug as it seems the day goes by and I haven’t had a chance at hooking and by night I’m just too sleepy. I did marbleize some leftover wool worms as an experiment and some small pieces of wool and put the photos on my blog as a mini tutorial to show the process. I needed some colors for the grass. I did some reverse hooking on my rug so my progress as regressed, lol. but I’m happier with the way the grass looks now.
    I’m always looking forward to seeing little peeks at your mystery rug progress.

    Hugs, Julia

    1. Hey Julia…I am always thankful for your little tutorial in the Great Deworming group about marrying wool strips. I have followed those directions several times over the years!!!!! I love your marbleized worms!!! Hope you are feeling better after your fall………Hugs, Sunnie 🙂
