Sunshine Makes Me Happy - Hooked Rug

As most of you know by now I love the light, and sun light is one of my favorites. It feeds my soul. So, when I chose to hook this Rooster in the sunlight, I was excited. This pattern is designed by Marja Walker, carried by Primco - The House Of Price.
I started this rug in a class at McGown teacher's workshop. This rug was a great opportunity to use lots of texture, that was the actual exercise of doing this piece. Therefore, I used very little regular flannel weight wool. I overdyed lots of textures and had fun working with these interesting wools.
I couldn't help myself when I gave him a cocky expression. I have never met a Rooster without attitude, and this one has lots of it!

  8. This rug is beautiful! I think you should print it up to make cards! He could spread sunshine to many people... Just a thought! This rug certainly reflects the time, consideration and attention you put into it.
