Original Chicken Challenge Rug and Fine Finishes

A few posts earlier I informed everyone about a Chicken Challenge with no deadline and provided a free pattern.  At the time I didn't have a picture of the original rug from which the challenge developed.....until now.
Obviously those are the drawn lines on the picture taken at the antique store of the original.  It appears the right side was cut off in the photo taking.  But now we get to see how the original was hooked and it makes me feel more invested in the challenge seeing this.  Sorry, I don't know who hooked it, this is a challenge which was kindly offered by Woolwrights

So now to the "fine finishes" segment.  This piece was hooked by Sandi Percival and won First in Class and First in Show.  She hooked it in a class taught by Kathy in Ontario, Canada.  Hey folks, this was a small piece and to get that much detail and so many motifs in a primitive piece is something I've not taken on yet.  Not that dang small.
Elizabeth also has a wonderful memory rug as well. 

I really wanted to make a comment on Kathy's blog but the comment section has been disabled due to negative anonymous abuse (cyber bullying).  SO...... I'm doing it now on my blog. 

Kathy, you must be one damn good teacher and bet I could learn lots from you too.  Wish I didn't live so far away so we could have play days.  AND..... I want to see Mr. Baa..... the Frost sheep rug update.  I'm sure there's more done now since this picture.
I still like yours more than mine.



  1. Wonderful rugs and love the kitty one with the blue shades, nice color choices.


  2. Oh Saundra, thank you for your kind comments about Mr. Baaaa. I love the rose tones in your rug. Maybe we should do a trade! You draw a great pattern too. That's a complicated pattern to draw and it's drawn perfectly. Hugs, Kathy

  3. love the rugs so great color and talent I am still thinking of doing that chicken rug.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
