Let the Show Continue.....

....but this time lets make it antique rugs.  

Below is a framed E.S. Frost rug pattern which is printed on burlap.  It was hard for me to tell from the original but think it is the foundation and not hooked.  But still an awesome and delightful item to proudly display if you are a hooker.
A horse in profile with scrolls early 1900's from Ephrata, PA.  A very well kept rug for that age.
Seems I've a red theme going with rugs.  Perhaps my Christmas spirit is about to be unleashed.  This one is an American hooked rug late 19th century.
A very primitive single flower in the center surrounded by hit and miss circles.  Would be something simple to recreate with our worms and make a cute primitive mat as a gift to those who love naive primitive pieces.  
Wow, look at this piece of folk art.  The cat is drawn naive and there are polka dogs in the body.  Wish I knew more information about it but that is all I could find on the auction site.
Again with the my red theme brain, here is a red and white bird with hit and miss border.  Wonder if those are holly berries and leaves?  
You guessed it, I'm biding more time to work more on the Red Lion. You'd think I'd be done by now since it is a small mat but not so.

Ben and I hope you have a good evening.



  1. LOVE that hit 'n miss with flower!!!
    Great pic of Ben. His coat is so shiny and beautiful.

  2. Love the cat one, very fun. I have seen similar ones with that type of style and outlines, so maybe someone has used a similar pattern and redone it.


  3. Ben looks pretty happy...I think we need to do a hook a long in January with that hit n miss and flower...the cat rug is creeping me out! happy Friday night...

  4. I love the hit and miss with the flower. I hope you and ben are having a good evening also.
