More Magdalena Briner

I've got to get out of the depressing funk that I'm in so what better to talk about than Magdalena Briner.  There are a few other of her designs that I want to hook and have three others lined up in my mind.

Actually I did hook a Magdalena rug which I haven't posted on my web site, and it was just half of Magdalena's rug which normally has two horses but I hooked just one.  I'm sure you will recognize which design of Magdalena's it is when you see it.
The other rugs that are tugging at me are pictured below and hooked by other people.
So when I get ready to hook another Magdalena rug for my collection it will be among these.

This one was hooked by Evelyn Lawrence who did the research on Magdalena Briner.

This is another of my favorites which was also hooked by Evelyn and the original is in collection of the great granddaughter who Evelyn has met.

And the other I'm wanting to hook for my collection is this one.  I love how dark and old this one looks.
So bloggers....... sorry I've been remiss in keeping my postings going but I did hit a few bumps in the road lately with work and then other unhappy issues which, if you've been reading you know.

Happy hooking everyone.


  1. It's good how creativity and art can often nudge us out of our doldrums. I just unpacked my rug and working on it makes me feel less overwhelmed after a major move.

    I love these rugs. Keep the faith...and I hope things even out for you soon!

  2. Hi Saundra, Sorry your having a hard time. It will get better it just takes time.
    Thanks for sharing Magdalena Briner rugs. Double hugs Cheri

    My heart aches for you! It is so hard losing a loved one, even the four legged variety. They offer such unconditional love.
    I love Magdalena Briner rugs! I have hooked the two horses and one of these days hope to get it bound. It's about time I finished it.
    Hugs :)

  4. I just love these rugs--have tried to look up the patterns before with no success. I love the horse pattern and there is also a quail one that is amazing. Do you know if the patterns are available?


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
