I am participating in the "Out of Hand Rug Hookers Hook-a-Long and Challenge" on Facebook. (WHEW! That's a mouthful.) We were given maybe 15 motifs to choose from to design a rug at least 18" x 28". You could use as few or as many as you wished.
Magdalena Briner was my inspiration. Here's my design before transferring to my linen backing.
I think my rooster came out pretty good :)
Bobbie was able to identify this wool as Milk and Honey by Heavens to Betsy. I love the way it hooked up. The color in the bottom picture is the true color.
Progress so far. I was going to put an LF in the left corner. I wanted it to blend in, but I think I need to hook more around it to see if it is going to work. I also need to tweak my fat-headed mouse. I think I need to move his hind "legs" further back. He looks like he is on wheels . . . lol.
So far, this is fun. I may not get any of my Christmas gifts made . . . sigh . . . but there's always next year, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
