I cannot believe that I just spent 45 minutes writing my blog and with a click of the wrong arrow just lost it all. There must have been 8 or 10 pictures which I had to locate in different files and poof.... all gone. I almost decided to walk away from the computer and quit but it has already been 5 days since my last post. What is worse is that I was done with my post and was checking to see if the link attached was working and then clicked to exit rather than the arrow to go back to where I was. Oh well, that taught me to click SAVE sporadically when I'm doing my blog. (like now)
This small rug or mat evolved because my friend Evelyn Lawrence gave me a challenge. It all started when I was hooking the fox mat for Barb before leaving for Woolly Fox. Evelyn asked the size which was 9 x 15 and she said that would be the perfect dimensions for her to hook up quickly. She asked if I would draw one up and send it to her..... well of course, anything for my dear friend. Evelyn is considering teaching a Magdalena Style class and thought it might be nice for students to see how a design can be done in Magdalena style and how each one might come out differently. We didn't know how each other was going to hook our rugs but I just knew they would be different....and so they were. SAVE! (not going to lose this again)
While the hooking is done it has not yet been bound but was excited to share it with you. This piece measures 12 x 17 as room was needed for the corner swags and circle flowers.
Just remember to date your rug and put a tag on it with your name as the hooker, the date and the wording "Inspired by a design of Magdalena Briner".
