Still in Progress

Still not a lot of accomplished on my 2 chicken Daleview Farm rug.  Between yard work, finishing up an order of 5 dolls, and now drawing patterns for someone, it has left precious little time for me to pull many loops on this rug.  Oh, and add making flower pins so that I'll have enough to take to my first show.

I have started adding some border hit and miss colors and hooked some background.  I left a little on the other chicken so that when I get too bored with border and background  there will still be something in the chicken to do.  This picture was taken with a flash and shows up the colors a bit brighter.

This picture was without a flash and is a tad darker than it appears in person.

As mentioned previously, this is a Polly Minick design called Daleview Farm which was originally designed with 3 chickens.  If you wish to purchase it you can order it from her web site:

Now back to the drawing board..... really...... I've cut and serged the linens and now to draw out a couple more designs.


  1. Hi, Saundra,
    The black and white tweed (?) that you used for the chickens is wonderful, and so are your antique background colors. Do you know that you have the nasty word verification thingy on for blog? It is two words that are nearly impossible to read, sometimes you have to try several times to leave a comment.

    There just never is enough time for the fun stuff!
    Hugs :)

  3. Oh...I love black and white chickens! Looks great so far,
    can't wait to see the finish!

  4. What a fun pattern. I'm off to a regional ATHA hook-in tomorrow. I only have rugs to bind...well, not true...there's that unfortunate pumpkin rug that should be banned from the free world. So, I'm binding...and looking for new patterns. Keep us posted on the chickens...they are looking great!
    Have a great weekend!
