The comment on my blog was... I wanted to hook it before offering the pattern for sale so others could see how mine was hooked. Well, seems I never followed up and have people questioning. Here is a photo of the rug I hooked with a flash which washes out the colors.
Then below is the photo of the original Magdalena Goat I discovered early January 2017 at an on-line auction site.
Immediately I sent all the information and close up photos provided by the auction house to my friend Evelyn Lawrence. She has done the research on Magdalena Briner Eby for years. Out of respect for her I held out blogging my find or even starting to hook it until Evelyn hooked the rug first. Here is Evelyn's rug and cannot wait to see hers in person at Cape May rug camp this September.
Notice sweet Evelyn kept more true to Magdalena's original hooked goat horns than me.
Since there have been several inquires I will also send an email to those folks who have purchased Magdalena's Domestic Zoo patterns from me.
The dimensions of the Magdalena Goat pattern are 29 X 35 drawn on Dorr natural primitive linen, cost is $80 plus $7 priority shipping within the US.
