This is an antique adaptation of a pattern I replicated and from the provenance given named it Red Bird of PA. Even tho the bird isn't red perhaps originally hooked it may have been red and faded.
Hooked a rug named July Cabin which was a free to copy and enlarge in a Woolley Fox book. I'd become increasingly comfortable making changes to a design to suit my home and my tastes. The original design had flags as leaves, the smoke going straight upward making the rug taller. So my changes reflected the tree leaf colors that sweet Barb Carroll helped me color plan for the Woodland Deer rug.
A small candle mat was needed so hooked an Edyth O'Neill.
Another antique adaptation which I called Lions in the Woods. After seeing numerous antique rugs with similar design and colors chose the elements from those which I liked best. After it was hooked it was sold and released to a buyer who also appreciated it.
That year also hooked Baa Baa Dorr.
Another year at rug camp with Barb Carroll I wanted to do something special for her again. In a previous visit had taken a photo of her Woolley Fox sign and drew up a little mat for her.
Another antique adaptation pattern I hooked was Ducks and Eggs nest which was a Canadian hooked design.
That year I hooked another Polly's designs and hooked it twice. Her original pattern called Daleview Farm had 3 chickens, but she wanted the pattern smaller so hooked two chickens instead.
When at Barbs that year I noticed her hooked rug Westmoreland Ponies and just HAD to have the pattern so purchased it from her. Little did I realize it had been in Rug Hooking Magazine as a free to enlarge pattern design. HA! Guess I need to pay more attention to those wonderful freebie designs to hook in magazines.
