Magdalena Dog

I've not really made a lot of headway with my new project but I am savoring every loop I pull.  Plus, I'm in no hurry to finish it as there is no deadline.  Well, I say in no hurry ~ but I wanted to hurry and hook at least some flowers before I posted a picture so it would look like there was progress.  Yet, since life gets in the way ( you know the boring stuff like vacuuming up wool dust, dog hair, laundry.... yawn...) then I didn't get as much accomplished as I'd hoped. 

I'm still working thru what wools to use on what I have here (uh, like I don't have enough to choose from).  For this Magdalena I'm not going to try and emulate what she did for her original.  I did try to keep close colors to her other three rugs I hooked. 

However, I am trying to make the rug look old and like it was hooked using wools that 'She' had.  Heck, all women like Magdalena used whatever they had.... they had to use it up, make do or do without.  Just love the areas of change of color in the body of her animals and this dog. 


  1. Hi Saundra, I have a break tonight and you inspired me to get back to my hooking. It looks great your newest rug.Hugs Cheri

  2. I'm in the middle of a large hit or miss background on my vintage urn rug. Boy, it goes slowly! I actually hope to have it done by next week so I can start the new rug over vacation!! I'm so looking forward to it!

  3. Saundra ~
    You're off to a great start! What size is this one?
    Hugs :)

  4. That is the best part of a rug is enjoying the process. Sometimes I am in a hurry to get to the next thinkg.
