Lady Nesta Birdwhistle-mystery rug-2018-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs/folk art-Day 6

Had fun over the weekend working outside and also taking a little time to hook on Lady Nesta!   🙂

(I chose a lot of my blues and decided to use several of them for some of the bird body feathers.   My husband and I loved bluebirds and this makes me laugh as I hook this large and rather ungainly looking bird in blue and think about the small and beautiful bluebirds that we had around our rural Vermont home.)   🙂

Although I do these funny rugs  because I love “plays on words” and silly situations, etc.  I also laugh at the goofy advertising we get sometimes and the gushing and often ridiculous articles in newspapers and magazines about celebrities !!!     (I showed you my medieval “denture” rug a few posts ago that I changed because of seeing one too many silly denture commercials!!!!)   

Now… Do you remember all of the focus on Pippa Middleton’s bottom during coverage of Catherine and Prince William’s royal wedding?    (when she was holding her sister’s train)   And women’s rush to have their “bottoms” plumped up or lifted, etc. to look like hers or those of their favourite stars?   Well, Lady Nesta’s admirers are following that same trend today!!!!!   …lol…

Lady Nesta Birdwhistle article continued:


“…Lady Nesta’s derriere is applauded and envied each time it is photographed!   Many upper class lady birds race to the Justa Swansong Clinic to have their posteriors “lifted” or “enhanced” after seeing photos of Lady Nesta.   (and none of them grouse about the results either!)….(to be continued)


So here is Progress on Day 6…if you had told me years ago that I would be posting pictures of a bird’s back end and writing an article about it, I would not have believed you!!!!!   …lol…   (or maybe I would…with me, you never know!)   🙂   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. Elaine and Julia…you wouldn’t think I could get any goofier (or maybe you could!!!!!)…lol…but I think you should call a doctor for me if I start hooking a lot of serious florals in a #3 cut…!! Joe always said I had a mind that was part “Mr. Spock” and part wild imagination!!!! I always appreciate the encouragement…as I have such a fun time with all of my rugs!!! Hugs to you guys and I hope you are having a great time today, whatever you are doing!!!! Sunnie 🙂
