“The Little Gardener” hooked rug-2018/Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs Finished! :)

Sorry to be so long away from my Blog!    Can’t believe how busy it has been…but I think things will come back to “normal” now!    🙂

I have been able to finish the hooking on this piece and am happy with the experiment with the dust-dirt colours on the border!!!!   This was fun to simply do colour and design experiments as I went along!

The leaves are done with a plaid on one side of the leaf and then leftover woolworms in greens on the other side of each leaf.   Of course, the background of the border is a plaid and the flowers are different textured wools.   I used some leftover worms in the blue sky, leaf veins and in the little girl’s dress.   The “path” is also plaid and textures cut worms and leftovers!!!

Here is the finished piece…I am doing the edge-whipping now.   My oldest daughter is a wonderful gardener and she loves this…so I am giving it to her!

Hope you all are doing well wherever you are.   Thank you for visiting me here today…I always enjoy your rug hooking comments!   🙂

Have a wonderful day…and 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!

  3. Hi Julia…it is perfect for my daughter as she loves gardening!! I am whipping it with a very pale pink yarn that adds just a hint of colour to the edge!
    I am still laughing at the bird legs!!!! She will be called “Lady Nesta Birdwhistle”…a very prominent member of the upper class! …lol… Hugs, Sunnie 🙂

  4. Hi Elaine…I’m glad my experiments turned out well…I really wondered about those “dust and dirt” colours…but rug hookers here thought that it looked like a stone wall with a window in it. 🙂
    The bird legs are so funny…I am turning the bird into a “She” called “Lady Nesta Birdwhistle”…so we will see what happens with her!!!!! …lol… Hugs, Sunnie 🙂
