An oval with penny circles in the center, blooms in the corners and hit and miss background.
Hexagons and Diamonds.An oval with hit and miss free form in center.
A farm and family rug which looks like embroidery but think it is hooked in directional style hooking. Almost reminds me of a Granny Donaldson design. Nice rug but oh my that directional hooking would drive me crazy from boredom I think. So I'd have to hook it in the outline and fill.
Okay, now to what has been making me salivate like Pavlov's dogs. The next two rugs are what I WISH I could achieve. Below is a picture Ali Strebel posted a while back on her blog. I've just written her inquiring who hooked it and was there a pattern.
Okay, heard from Ali, the rug is a design by Anne Wallace from a photo of her grandfather. OMG, is that a wonderful piece of history and family heirloom or what? Anne, fantastic piece of folk art!!!! I'm envious of your talent.
And would you take a look at this!!!!! It appears to be a work in progress and I adore it, wish I owned it. No, ....wish I could achieve this look and then I WOULD own it. Incredible!! I'm envious! This was found on Pinterest with no name, sorry. I'd definitely give credit to whomever it is doing this beautiful work.
So if anyone knows who is hooking this rug, please let me know . Have a great evening everyone.
