Chicken Trio

 

This design, Chicken Trio, truly does epitomize the phrase, "funky chicken"!

Someone once sweetly told me that my chickens didn't look like any chickens they'd ever seen! That made me smile inwardly. I'm sure they have never seen a purple mouse, green cat, or a rabbit on a blue hill either! All of which I have designed and hooked in other pieces. As a primitive/folk artist, I'm not concerned with reality, rather I want a mood or essence to be the focus emanating from my work.

 

 

 

 

Even though I live within the city limits, I love that I can hear neighbor's chickens clucking. It feels like I've cheated and have a little bit of the farm right in my own backyard. For over a year now, someone has a rooster too. It makes me chuckle to myself, glad that he is still around, greeting each morning!

Chicken Trio is a light-hearted, fun rug to hook.

Please visit my ETSY shop if you are interested in Chicken Trio or any of my other designs.

  1. Another of your cute rugs I haven't seen. I love your funky background unlike like mine done with one color. Maybe someday!

    1. Thank you Marie! Using many colors in a background make it interesting to hook, if you like that look. One needs to think of value, not just color. Let me know when you want to give it a try! mj

  2. Obviously there are lots of us who love your cheerful and whimsical patterns. I know because I am just starting work on the adorable "Bunny Lullaby". and am considering what other ones I want to do. Love the new color palette I am hooking instead of the primitive colors of most of my other rugs.

    1. Thank you so much for saying so! I'd love to see YOUR Bunny Lullaby when you are finished! It is always fun for me to see how other hookers add their own personality and magic to a piece. Thanks again, mj
