Here a Chick There a Chick

This is how the Two Chickens rug is looking at this moment.  I did go pull some more neutral wool for the border as it seems to have too many similar colors and think there should be a little break between the values and color that have been hooked.  Oops, this shows up really dark but when I took a picture with a flash the colors looked almost neon which couldn't be further from the truth.
The two chickens were selected from the original pattern by Polly Minick called Daleview Farm.  So if you purchased the pattern and draw your own designs you could pick and choose your single, double or all three chickens depending on the size rug you want.

I'm still struggling with my Cape May project and went 'rug surfing' during the weekend to see if there were some inspiring vintage rugs for me to consider.  Frankly I didn't see any that would be suitable for the Cape May project, but OH MY...... did I fall in love with a lot of antique rugs that I want to hook in November with Lucille Festa.  I will share those in an upcoming post on my blog.  At first my plans for November was hooking the vintage Santa and Deer that you see in the Kopp book, but now I'm not sure.  Sheesh, I'm not even done with Cape May in September and already am looking to November.  The last thing I need to do is fast forward my life away.

Thanks for visiting and hope you enjoyed your stay.
