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.

...there's nothing on my frame!!
Have no fear as the hit and miss 12" square mat is all hooked. Seen below on my antique school desk the edges of the foundation have been stitched, trimmed and turned under for the photo.
Tomorrow I have another eye appointment to sign forms before my first cataract surgery coming in October. So while impatiently waiting I'll start binding the little mat. It is ready to go with me in this little handy and cheap basket picked up somewhere.
Still have lots to do before I leave on Sunday but at least I've started. Some things have to wait until the last minute but yesterday I cut the majority of the yard with the riding mower saving Ben's backyard until just before leaving since his cut more often. Haven't packed my suitcase yet because the weather surely will change. Stay tuned and will show you what goes on my frame between now and Sunday when leaving. Happy Tuesday to you all. Saundra
