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.
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.
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.
