2017-June-12 x 12-“The Rooster and the Rose” mat-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs-Day 5 Finished…!!!

I finished the rest of “The Rooster and the Rose” today…it was great fun! 

As I said, I used cut paper for the rose and some of the grass and flower “patterns” and just drew around them.   I just sketched the rooster, a favourite theme in old fraktur and sampler images and added little bits as I went along.

The Rooster really looks like he is up to something…that little smile means there is mischief afoot…!!!   …lol…

I think I’ll make this into a pillow and will show another picture here when it is finished.   Now to decide on my next 12 x 12…I have a couple of ideas for that but just have to settle on something.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..Happy Hooking!   It is raining today so no outside work…more time to design more rugs!!!   Here is Finished Project on Day 5…   Sunnie   🙂

2017-June- 12 x 12 -“The Rooster and the Rose” mat-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs-Day 3

12 x 12 inch pieces go so quickly, I hope you will try this size for a fun mat or pillow, etc.   🙂

I hope to finish the hooking on this one in a couple of days.   I am happy with the colours and will remember them when I design a larger rug.

Here is the Pendleton plaid I am using for the background:

 

And the plaid I am using for the rooster body:

 

As you can see, I am working on this from the bottom up…and I am liking the leaf shapes.   I might use that shape again…and they are easy to cut out of paper and just draw around for a quick pattern!!!

Here is the Progress for Day 3…Happy Hooking!   Sunnie   🙂

 

 

Small Hooked pieces under 18 x 18 inches- plus 4 x 6 postcard size-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs

I am working on the edge-finishing on my Parrot rug and enjoying some hooking on some smaller things!

I am about to finish up all three of my “Inside-Outside….” Challenge pieces…done in the “Great De-worming” Group on RHDaily.   The two chairpads and the pillow!   The Challenge finishes March 31…and the full pieces will be shown then!   Here’s a little bit of the two chairpads!!!!!!!   …lol…   A great way to have fun using leftover woolworms!

The first one is “Inside Auntie’s Kitchen” and the second is “All Around Padula Town”.

Kristin (on Rug Hooking Daily) has started a Group celebrating ATC (artist trading cards) and I decided to try designing a few in the 4 x 6 inch format and joining the first exchange!   🙂   This size, for me, means hooking in #3 and #4 cuts!!!   Although I use these narrow cuts in my larger pieces, I don’t do entire rugs in these sizes.  

Here are my first  4 x 6 inch efforts below…”Canary Celebrating Spring!” and “Home is Where the Heart Is”.   I am working on a third design right now.

I’m thinking about my next rug too…several ideas are zipping around in my brain…!   Happy Hooking!   Sunnie   🙂
