Mini Antique Rug Show

Since there's nothing spectacular to share on hooking progress and my grandson's play pictures haven't been reduced/edited thought I'd give you some antique rug eye candy.

This is a rug my friend Evelyn Lawrence wants to hook.  I'd forwarded a link to Edyth O'Neill's Blog to her and Evelyn wrote back saying she would really like to hook this.  So if anyone knows who draws the pattern, please get in touch with me.
I think this rug below is a beauty and it was also on Edyth's blog.  For more wonderful photos you can either click on the link above or scroll down the left side of my blog and click on her link there.
This rug below depicts a baby and obviously a protective dog.  How dear is that?
This Shaker horse is documented as having been hooked in 1840.  Look how well preserved it is and with a beautiful braided edge.  
This date I saw on the rug below was 1890.
Now time for us animal lovers.  How fun for you feline lovers, this rug was documented as having been hooked by Mary Baxter Holt (1915-2005).
Another colorful rug (for you dog lovers) hooked by Mary Baxter Holt.
Okay kids, time for me to pull more loops so I can get some UFOs done in the year 2015.  I need hooking time.

    Merry Christmas

  5. I love those rugs, all except the last one, it is the colors, not the design that don't appeal. I really love the first and the horse.

  6. That first one is my favourite too. What a beauty.
    Thanks for the rug show Saundra.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
