Have you ever had the desire to hook a rug again? I've had the desire but haven't done it yet. One particular rug was an antique adaptation I did which I sold. The circumstances which lead up to the sale was when my ex left and I was concerned about making ends meet.
He left a couple years ago on a July Friday 13th (no joke, the 13th) and I had an art/craft show to do the next day on the 14th. Contemplating making money for upcoming expenses I grabbed the rug and took it with me to the show. Well, don't you know the rug was grabbed up. I cannot remember what price I had on it but wonder since it was grabbed so quickly if perhaps I had not charged enough.
So this is the dear rug I sold and would like to hook again. I tried to attain a similar look to the antique which appeared in the booklet "Art Underfoot" by Joel and Kate Kopp but with a little personal artistic license. I just loved this rug and wish it were in my home.
Even tho I probably don't have all the same wools or shades of wool I used in hooking this piece, I'm sure that I could gather up similar colors. Oh, I just remembered that I used antique paisley in the eyes of those two critters too. Sigh. Oh well, at least for now I have a wonderful picture.
The rug looks like an antique rug. I sometimes look in antique books for pictures of old hooked rugs. CheriReplyDelete

OK. Third time I'm trying to leave a comment. I keep losing my internet connection and there goes my comment.
Just wanted to say that exes can be very good at walking out...lol! I have firsthand experience, too :)
LOVE the rug. I say hook it again.
Pug hugs :)
