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.

Ned is finally bound and ready to take to Cape May for the rug show. It is a pattern purchased from Woolley Fox.
When first pulling the pattern from my stash to hook thought that I'd hook it like the original which is shown below but changed my mind and went with a dark background and other changes. There isn't a label ready to attach to the back of my hooked version yet but when I have 8 new photos ready to print on fabric will use the antique picture as the photo on the label.
After mine was hooked I saw a photo of Jo Leedy Ritter Wick's hooked version and was sorry that I didn't hook mine like the original. Jo did such an amazing job! Just look at this beauty. Great job Jo and I'm envious.
Now I've got to finish up the last hooking on Turkey and Tallowberries so that one can be bound and taken to Cape May in 2 weeks. TA TA. Saundra
