ROOSTER RUG PROGRESS ~ ~ ~

 This morning is Day 7 to hook on the Rooster Pair ~ how do like those purple feet?  I like them a lot!!  Every rug should have some purple in it!!  I hooked while I watched the re-cap of THE WEDDING!  At 4 a.m., I bounded out of bed to the sound of my phone alarm!  I was really tired ~ we went out for a bite to eat last night and ended up stopping at The Happy Grape (that's our town's new wine bar)  for a nightcap and found some friends ~ some old ones and some new ones!!  It was fun, of course!!  And so was the wedding ~ a wonderful respite from all the doldrums of life ~ every country should have a prince and princess or duke and duchess, as Will and Kate will be called now ~ it's uplifting! 

This is the overall picture of how far I've gotten ~   it looks  yellow ~ I don't like that ~ but in order to get it light enough for the colors to show, it goes yellow in the re-setting.  If you click on the photo, it will be enlarged and you can click again and see it really close up!  It's quite sparkly!!  I might add that this rug is 29 x 50 ~ it's going to be a sparkly whopper of a rug!!

I've left that rooster's tail for last because the left tail is so beautiful and I don't want to do the very same thing on the right one ~  I keep thinking my wools will inspire me so that it holds it's own when finished!!  Sometimes I think too much, me thinks!!

Yesterday, I spent another hour and a half at the dentist ~ getting this blessed tooth ready for it's permanent crown.  In three weeks, it will be ready to be applied for good!  In the meantime, I will be very cautious!!

Have a good weekend ~ hopefully, the weather has calmed down across the country and we can look forward to some beautiful Spring temperatures and flowers ~ but I think it is going to be more like Spring showers!!  Oh, well ~ rejoice in what we have!  Ta ta for now!

You are moving along very quickly on your rug!!! It looks terrific and I love the purple feet ~ though you know I could not commit to that on my rug...lol! I hope to make some progress this weekend on my proddy sheep rug and post a picture soon.
Maybe we will have decent weather this weekend. One can only hope! I have so much yard work to do.
Pug hugs :)
