The White Stuff

The first snow of the season in my area.  
Thankfully it is just a dusting.
 Just enough snow to look pretty without the worry of shoveling and fear of power failure.
 Even the bird's house has a little snow of the roof top.
And so as to not disappoint, here are a few rugs to enjoy.  Hettie is documented as being an Amish rug hooked early 20th century.
Below is a horse with a hodge podge hit and miss border.  Interesting.
This one below is called Main Street, Maine dated 1920.
I am ever so slowly working on the sheep border and have only just whipped my way around the first corner of the rug A Day in the Country so still have more to go.  Tomorrow I'll bore you with a photo of one or the other but thought I'd give you another day away from my boring updates and give eye candy instead.

Happy snowy Sunday.



  1. Your updates are never boring. Inquisitive minds want to know.

  2. I'll saw your snow looks pretty but... we have our own snow and it's much deeper than your. bawhaha...

    Your rug updates are never boring and I never miss a post if I can help it... even though I'm busy...

    The border around that horse reminds me of Deanne Fitzpatrick hooking style.

    Enjoy your itty pitty bit of snow. Hugs,

  3. It's pretty when it's just a dusting. Lol

  4. It snowed for a good part of the day, but thankfully not too much accumulation.
    You are never boring!!!
    I lost another follower today :(

  5. never boring always inspiring love the Maine rug.

  6. We are getting some snow tonight, just enough to enjoy and hopefully it will stay on the ground. Beautiful rugs, I need to start thinking about what i want to make for my new chair.
