June 2017-12 x 12 inch mat-“The Rooster and the Rose”-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs-Day 2

I couldn’t believe that this blog program has “protected” me from over 18,000 Spam comments!!!!  I still have a few “spams” that come through and most of them are simply disjointed comments that have nothing to do with rug hooking or crafts of any kind.

I still have trouble understanding why anyone would spend time sending comments that make no sense or advertising comments to people who have Blogs about their homes and gardens, their art or craft projects or their families.    After all, they could be hooking or painting or embroidering or woodcarving…etc. with that time!!!!!   🙂

And now…On to “The Rooster and the Rose”….

As I’ve said, I am using this as an experiment with the background plaid and also with the limited colour choices.   Rather soft, primitive colours and lots of leftovers!!!   (that “S” kinda looks like a worm!)    🙂

So here is Day 2 Progress…that tan I am using for the rooster body is a plaid also, and a couple of the green strips are plaids.   Cutting the paper leaves was fun and the “lollipop flowers” look a bit weird…and I like that.   Happy Hooking!   Sunnie   🙂
