It's no secret I've an affection for antique rugs and prefer to hook replications with their faded and worn state vs. what the colors were by looking at the back of the rug. Enjoy the show.
This One Room School house and auction house said was hooked late 19th century. Am guessing the initials at the bottom are that of the hooker.
pictorial with the date of 1892. I had to look twice when reading the description on the auction site because it looked almost like 1822 at first.
A hit and miss background below with birds, duck and cat was hooked late 19th century early 20th.
Another hit and miss background with an almost hidden elephant due to fading. This was hooked 19th century and located in New Hampshire.
Received my propane yesterday, removed the space heaters, cranked up the thermostat and slept like a baby last night without worry. Hope you living in the cold are staying warm and for those in California I'm sad. First the fires, then the rain and mud slides.
I lived in Northern California (east of San Francisco) for 3 years and thank goodness all we encountered were the earthquakes, which I HATED. After my first husband died couldn't wait to get my son and myself back to the east coast where we only contend with hurricanes, blizzards, nor-easters, tornados....oh, and occasional earthquake,😒.
Happy hooking, needle punching and quilting to all my blog buddies.
