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.

Now and Then
Okay, I've done some tweaking (duh, my middle name) and this is Turkey and Tallowberries now.
Am happier than what it looked like before. I switched out the top and bottom tail feathers. But hey, who knows if it might not be tweaked again before the rug is done.
Blogger friend Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) commented she saw the pattern at Sauder in Spruce Ridge Studio's booth and didn't realize how big it was. Yet Lauren likes smaller pieces. So for those of you wondering, the pattern measures 18 x 28 which doesn't seem so big to me. Happy Friday to you all and hope you have a safe and great weekend. Saundra
