Old rugs in Country Living magazine was my inspiration to learn how to hook so am drawn to them for home decor and fun of hooking. I don't want to invent a new concept or technique, I just want to be me and hook what endears me.
As the July 4th holiday is coming will start with two great Eagle rugs. The first one was hooked 1920, the eagle and background is hit and miss. One fantastic job the hooker did using what she had to illistrate the curve of wings and definition in legs. The original size was 39 x 43 on burlap.
It was named "Fruits of Industry" and hooked around 1925-1935 using cotton on burlap by the Hutchinson's.
layered hearts, 8 point stars, spades and what I guess are scrolls. For some reason those scrolls appear like Asian alphabet.
Last but not least, and saving the icing for Kelley, there is.... tada.....a black cat chair pad with a pink ribbon.
Okay kids, this is all I've got for tonight. Finally pulled a few loops on my rug after a doctor appointment and have another doctor appointment tomorrow to establish a new Primary Care Physician. And then on Monday a bone scan.
I'd really rather not spend my time in a doctor office but it is best to know what is going on, right?
Hope you have a good evening and am comfortable in my A/C as the heat and humidity is rising thru the weekend.
