How about a Rug Show

I've been like a slug this morning sitting at the computer looking thru old rug pictures saved on CD's and moving them to a flash drive as a back up.  After my computer crashed and lost all the photos saved in my 'pictures' thought it might be wise to have backups to save photos I like to refer to.

Some were from Cape May 2008 and some I just saved were antique rugs.  So maybe I'll show you the Cape May rugs first and another day will do the antique rugs.  This first one is a Lib Callaway design.  
Can't read the label on the lion rug but I think it may be a Bev Conway design.
The dog and cat primitive is by Lucille Festa.
In the spirit of Halloween is Merrie Halloween in progress at the 'throw down' at Cape May 2008.  Love the colors
This is a picture of me in 2008 holding the pattern Eat Crow which I started with Patsy Becker.  
Below is a Bev Conway pattern  of chickens on eggs.  That is the way the rug as designed.
I hooked that design too but wanted to do my own thing and have the chickens sitting on straw nests instead.
Here is a design by Lucille Festa named Moon Over Vermont which also happens to be one of the patterns in my stash yet to hook.  Love the way she hooked the sky giving energy to the home.
 Below is a rug which was being worked on by my friend Evelyn Lawrence.

Home on a hill with heart shaped outlined scrolls.

 Aother hooked by Evelyn of a chickens runner.
 Cute bird mats.

There are many more photos I haven't gone thru so will have a diversion for you away from the bordom of my rug updates.

Well kids, I'm growing mold under my butt so I'd better get off the computer and be more productive in some way.  Should work on cleaning up some leaves and want to pull some loops.  Which will win????  Even I don't know yet .



  1. Hi Saundra,
    Another great rug show!!! So many to choose from as favorites!!! As to gathering leaves or pulling loops, why not set the timer for 10 minutes, go out and gather up some leaves and then hook to your heart's content! Then you have done both!! Yes, I really do like that idea!!!! Oh, and be sure to stop by my blog as I am having a Giveaway!!
    Enjoy your day, my friend!
    Heart Hugs~
