Primitive barn yard rooster

Well, my rooster did not take long. Two days, now that's more like it. Those hook rugs take me over a week. Now, I have to bind it. Anyone know how? Same as a hook rug? A pillow would be neat, but I am clueless how to get that to work. I had to change some of the colors on this pattern, because: One, I ran out of yarn and two the directions had a picture about an inch tall. That was really difficult to tell what colors go where. Other than those difficulties, it went fairly well for my first try at needle punch. Now I can pull out all that scrap yarn I have in the garage and actually make something out of it.

I cannot lay any of these rugs down for more than 2 seconds without a kitty getting on them! Still no home for booger butt....and Oreo is not a good name. It does not rhyme with I will take name suggestions, if you have any!

Many years ago my Aunt had a kitty that looked like that and they named it Inky! Think of all the names that rhyme with that! Cool rug by the way.

Dear Jenny,
Love the kitty...would take her in if we did not have two already and one that is black and white which was a feral cat and my husband tamed her. Love your pretty and what a great amount of work they take. Have a lovely day.

I like the name Booger Butt, NO, just kidding, No I'm not. LOL...I like the name Farroh.With his goldon eyes he looks like an Egypian king.I may have spelled it wrong. I'm not at my brightest right now.

Your hook rug is so cute. I am amazed at how good they turn out. You do a great job with them. I don't know how to do them. I love the rooster too. I have roosters in my kitchen. Cute kitty too :)

Love the rooster/needle punch Jenny. You did an awesome job. And how the kitties lay on things you lay down......I can relate all too well.

Oreo found a home :) He loves you guys and his name fits him. Sorry, but true. I like the name oreo.

You have a great day.

The Rooster turned out so cool! Booger Butt is a good one for him. I am sure that is what Boo Boo would like to call him. ;)

He is so cute.

I do like the name oreo but when you said you needed a new name the first thing that popped in my head was POE. Always like that for a boy kitty. Never named one that but have thought about that name for years.

adorable rug. I need to make something? running out of time.

We had a cat with black on his nose like that and we named him "Boogie". I loved that guy.
