So to provide a little entertainment think you deserve a rug show. Below is a star design from Pennsylvania using yarn on wool and it looks in great shape. Barb Carroll has a lovely piece with this technique.
Hooked in the 19th century is the Waldoboro style floral and scrolls below. I've never tried Waldoboro style mostly because I might want the rug for the floor and would trip over the elevated sections.
The date is visible on this hit and miss geometric rug below...1884.
Now I'm going to pull a loop or two before getting dinner. Still more to bind on two rugs but am beginning to have withdrawal from having a hook in my hand.
Have a great evening everyone.
