Even More Rugs

I'm holding off showing the progress on my rug so thought I'd entertain you with another rug show.
Such a pretty mat with a mixture of soft and brighter colors.  No date or provenance but like it.
The above rug has an interesting shape and must have been hooked for a particular spot, thus the shape.  Colors are awesome and part of my color palate.
The rather art deco oval rug above was reported hooked in 1930 and was found in Missouri.
Seems as tho mother goose is chasing away an inquisitive feline.
Info on the Cats and Kittens rug above is that it was hooked with wool and cotton on burlap ~ no other info.
A very striking and well preserved rug above was reportedly hooked 1900 and may be an Ebenezer Ross design.
And another possible Ebenezer Ross design is the Lion and Palms above.  
The above rug intrigues me on so many levels.....  First it was hooked by MB in 1881 as hooked in the oval rug.  The ball of yarn on the rug is a very bright red yet the rest of the piece is rather dull.  That is with the exception of the colorful sky from the window.  

And then there is the off centered borders with no border on the bottom.  And the inside lighter two side border.  This piece reminds me of a Gees Bend quilt only it is hooked.

Have a great evening folks.  Today was like summer outside (almost), tomorrow will also be mild in the low 50s.  Heaven can't last forever, but will drive to pick up my glasses tomorrow and no longer putting on and taking off these 'readers' which I wear halfway down my nose.   



  1. Another great show!
    I especially like the rug with the 2 big and 4 small kitties.
    Next week will be very mild in Ohio. We had torrential rains today. Had it been colder, we'd be butt deep in snow. So nice not to have to go out if I don't want to!!!
    Hugs :)
