Chicken Challenge Rug Inspiration

I've been wanting to hook a certain vintage rug for a while now but was in the midst of other projects.  So when the Chicken Challenge came about figured it possible to incorporate the two 'wants' into one.  I wanted to participate in the challenge but also wanted to hook that antique rug.  Here's what I've hooked so far.  Yikes, wonder why the linen background photo looks like that????
Since I've had my fair share of hit and miss lately, and the UFO geo which is essentially a hit and miss, the last thing I wanted to do is hook the chicken challenge similar to the original antique.  Yes, I love the antique but am not fond of hooking hit and miss.  This is the original antique rug.
This is the antique rug which was the inspiration behind my chicken challenge rug color choices.

From the antique rug above I chose the corner flowers to put on my challenge but tried to keep the integrity of the rest of the challenge rug intact.  But this rug beckons me and I so want to hook it like it is here.  So perhaps one day I'll have my wishes.  I just LOVE that rug.

Have a great weekend.  OH!  My commission rug arrived today so I may be MIA for a few days since I'll be busy.  Hmm, have an idea about things to post about tho.....stay tuned and have a great weekend.
