Working on Magdalena rugs my worm basket is my best friend to give the rug an aged look. Looking at this picture already I see things which will be reverse hooked. Yes I DID want to deviate a little from Magdalena's original but that is because she used what she had then. And I'm using what I have now.
My friend Evelyn Lawrence did all the research and replicated all the rugs done by Magdalena Briner Eby. This is the book to have IF you would like to learn more about Magdalena and her rugs from the 1800's.

Oh my but I do see BIG changes needed in the Olde Ducks. SO......tomorrow I'm putting on the sweet Snowman pattern purchased from Star Rug company last year. It was SO dang cute that I had to have one. It needs to be done before December 1st OR sooner if that snow comes.
I know, I know...... you wanted to see the snowman, right? HA! I knew you did. You'll have to wait until tomorrow.
Have a great evening but must say it's gonna get chilly real quick here in slower, lower, Delaware.
