Am still working on a name for the rug pattern but so far the words Bee Balm are resonating with me. This is what has been accomplished so far.
Previously shown (below) is the original antique, a small mat from 1825. I enlarged the design to a rug size of 23 x 32. Below is a poor photo taken from the Kopp book; the photo in the book is okay but the third generation photo from me isn't so good.
So newbies reading my blog, enjoy the process and just practice. LOL, one day you'll wish you had that naive style of hooking back again too.
Just have fun and do what you like.
