Let's see if I can successfully post this, after having lost the whole thing last night...sigh.. guess there is some truth to 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks', I'm not the brightest bulb when it comes to computers.
Anyway, my friend Evelyn brought the information about and now famous rugs of Magdalena Briner to the public eye and did an article about her works in an issue of Rug Hooking magazine a few years ago. So far I have hooked two other of Magdalena's rugs, Domestic Zoo which is a long runner and Dog and Crows. I have not displayed them in my home yet because I have a special room in mind for them where they can be on the floor together when this one is done and they will age the same rate.
Here is the Magdalena Eagle in progress. There's just a little more left at the bottom to hook and then the binding.
I will be quite happy when this is done because Magdalena's rugs seem to require more work than any other rugs I have hooked. The reason is because I'm trying to stay relatively true to the color choices of what Magdalena had to use while I'm using what I have. Tho I start out all organized with my colors together the wool eventually turns into a rat's nest of mixed colors all twisted together all around me.
When the rug is done I will post a finished picture of it.
