Yeah, you all love it when this happens....I know...
May have shown the above chenille shirred rug before, not sure. The date on the auction site said between 1930-1950 it was hooked.
Interesting that I should be hooking the Horse Trainer and above is a hooked piece called Man and His horse sold by Pook and Pook but could see no provenance or date. It was hooked with directional hooking vs. following the shape the animal's hair grows.
As inspiration for something small, above is a primitive flower in a circle, swags in the corners and filled in with what was on hand. No info on date or other, but sorta looks like it could be yarn, cotton or nylons.
Be still my heart. I won't hook it as it is too prissy for me but those colors speak to me. Perhaps because it reminds me of the design below which has been beckoning me to hook it forever!!!!
That would be the 1877 Urn. Oh my, oh my....
Okay guys and gals, time for me to pull a few loops since life got in the way today and didn't get many pulled.
