I love replicating antique adaptation rugs but also design my own. Looking at old rugs in Early American Life magazine was my inspiration to learn to hook.

Oops, Another Sheep Rug
Totally forgot to include this rug in yesterdays 'sheep show'. It is a design by Woolley Fox called "July Cabin" which I hooked in 2012.
Below is a photo of the free design in a booklet entitled "American Folk Art Rug Hooking" by Barb Carroll. If you compare the graphics below to what I hooked you can see there was some creative license taken. Harhar, some might question my 'creative' part.
This is a picture of the front of the cover and there are some other great free Barb Carroll designs in there for you to enlarge as you wish.
Yesterday's weather and today was great. Tomorrow will be a smidgen cooler but good in the lower 60's. And then... and then...don't think I want to talk about the weekend. Saundra
