Antique Rug with Scrolls and giveaway

A previous post about the scrolls on my sheep rug I mentioned about how our foremothers would use whatever they had to make their scrolls.  The rugs with scrolls were done much differently back then vs. the ornate and narrow cut scrolls of the Pearl McGowan era, as women had to made do or do without.  Here is a prime example of the make-do scrolls.
So here is my beloved E.S. Frost Sheep rug now... still not much more hooked but once the Edward Tulane rabbits leave my residence and onto their new homes I will have more time to hook.  Here is my rug now:

Yeah, I know everyone scrolled down looking for the "giveaway" information and bet no one even read my post, yeah, don't deny it, har har.   And actually I'm wanting to win the giveaway myself.  Frankly I don't care if it is the hooked crow rug or the penny rug because, let's face it, they're both wonderful fibre art that I'd love in my hooker home. 

So, if you are interested, check out Tricia at Hill Crest Homes and check out her giveaway offer.  But be sure to save one for me!!!!
