Unfinished Hooked Rug-“The Little Gardener”-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs/folk art

 

UFO…from 12 years ago!!!!!!   🙂

Recovering from a little surgery yesterday so I am resting and not hooking for a few days.   However, I was doing a bit of sorting last week and came up with a piece that I had started hooking on Monk’s cloth about 12 years ago.

This piece is called “The Little Gardener”…and although I don’t remember what “design vibes” were going through my mind back then, I know I was enjoying the hooking!!!!!   🙂

It is a combination of several things from Dover books and, when I drew out the design,  I remember thinking that I would do it in “sweet” pastel colours.   But for some reason (back then), I changed my mind as the little picture of the start of the piece has deeper colours.    I will carry on with those colours and see what I have in my stash that will go with what is already done!!!!!   

Hooking on monk’s cloth again will be different too…but I enjoyed it back then and will probably enjoy it once again!!!

Here is the picture of what was hooked about 12 years ago…I had a few strips of the original colours that were with the pattern…but will have to improvise on the rest of the rug.   Hope you are all doing well…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. That little boy looks like a prince. The colors are just super, especially the face. I know you’re going to do a great job on this also. I’m a bit anxious to start hooking my hen on Monk’s cloth but first I have to find my wool colors. It should be interesting.

    1. I am smiling because when I glanced at the original illustration that I adapted from one of the Dover books, I thought the face and hair looked like a little boy too! And even though the outfit is that of a little girl, I think, like you, that the drawing could be either one!!!! 🙂 🙂
      She does have a dress and “Mary Jane” shoes so I will continue on with the “girl” design, but in a shirt and overalls (or a little suit…!) she could certainly be a little boy!!!!!
      I really like “George” the rooster and he is beautiful…so “Julia” the hen needs to be beautiful too!!!!!! Hugs, Sunnie 🙂
