Red Bird of Pennsylvania

Today I did get a little more hooking done on the Red Bird of Pennsylvania rug.  If you look closely on previous pictures of the original antique rug you will notice thin strips of brown next to the cream border in sections and then a teal along the top and right side.  Luckily I've got some of those colors which can be pulled from my worms as well.

While it is great fun and having a sense of frugal 'using it up' from wool already cut, in reality there is still some cutting of wool going on for the major background.  Yet having those random pieces close to the color thrown in adds interest I think.

Okay, here it is now, but still a ways to go.
So as I'm hooking on this realize that the Big Dog Hollow needs to be bound so perhaps tomorrow I'll start that process to get Big Dog ready for the wool yarn whipping.  And, I purchased my wool yarn from a different source where it was cheaper.  So stay tuned to see from which company I purchased it.

Have a great evening everyone.



  1. What a beautiful design !
    Always enjoy seeing your work Saundra.
    Would love to see Big Dog when it is bound and ready. ;)

  2. You just amaze me! This is going to be another magnificent rug.
