Lady Nesta Birdwhistle-Mystery 2018-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs/folk art-Day 4

Quick post today…Hooking-at-my-House day!!!   🙂

I find hooking the background in straight lines to be rather boring (!!!) but it adds another bit of silliness to the rug.   Remember when I said that the sky should be a beautiful blue…I decided to use the gray plaid because hooking it in straight vertical lines has the suggestion of rain…just what we Don’t Want on a Garden Party Day!!!!!   …lol…

The Lady Nesta article continues with paragraph 2:


“….With photographers and reporters flocking around her, she elegantly stepped across the deliciously rounded lawn towards the magnificent Vulture Gazebo…the center of the festivities.”………(to be continued)


Now we all will have to have our own vision of the “magnificent Vulture Gazebo” mentioned because it is not shown in this piece!   But I have a vision of it and it makes me smile every day!!!!!   🙂

Here is Day 4 Progress as I work my way from right to left across the rug…and I still haven’t chosen Lady Nesta’s colours (!!!) but I’ll have to start…maybe later 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!

  1. Now the grey background makes sense. I would have never thought of that. The party must go on. lol.
    A very intriguing story.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. Yep…the show must go on, rain or shine…and I can just see all those elegant ladies at the Garden Party crowded into the “Vulture Gazebo”!!!!!!! I should have included an umbrella somewhere in the mix!!! …lol… Hugs, Sunnie 🙂
