The Little Gardener rug continues-2018/Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs/folk art-Day 3

Quick post today…the experimentation is really fun on this rug…and I think I am blending the new colours into the older colour scheme so they look all right!

I have done more sky and more of the grass and flower bed hooking along with the 2 colour border that goes around the center scene.    The “flower bed” part was done using two #3 strips (green and yellow) hooked together in a “higgledy piggledy” way.   I love this and now will keep it in my mental list of hooking techniques to use whenever it is needed…!   (I added the little burgundy accents afterwards.)  

Also, I have worked on the burgundy skirt and think it blends in with the bodice and sleeve done so many years ago.   Wanted to try a shoe too (plus start the “path”)…and this is just what I wanted!!!! 

I may change the fencepost “bottoms”…they look a bit odd to me…we’ll see.  

I have no idea what wools I used then…probably used them up long ago!!!!!!!   🙂

So here we go…isn’t rug hooking fun?   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 love how you put the shine on the patina shoes and I thought the little gardener was a cute boy, kind of prince, and it’s a little girl. lol…
    It’s looking so good and yes, rug hooking is fun. You certainly make it fun…
    Hugs, Julia
