Almost Decided

My next project is between these two antiques.  If I go for the donkey I'd hook it in browns instead of the grey.
And Flying Horse which I would also hook in browns.
Whichever I choose it will be hooked on Belgian linen which is strong but the holes are larger and may lend itself to a more OLD look.  I've tried doing antique adaptations for a while but my friend Shari recently attended a rug camp and she shared some information.  So this time I intend to hook an antique look on steroids!

First time I have sat down all day except to eat lunch.  My back porch door is literally falling apart.  If my ex were still coming here he would have repaired or replaced it for me.  So I've purchased a new door and used a sealer paint on one side today in the heat and humidity of outside.  I swear more time was spent prepping and looking for supplies than the actual painting.

Still have the other side to seal paint and then two coats of brown paint before getting someone to hang it for me.  I was meant to be a hooker not a painter 😀



  1. Awesome mats,,,
    Which to choose!!?
    I know what u mean,,,, hooker not cooker,,, or painter!!,♡

  2. I don’t think that I have ever used Belgian linen. I just use the primitive linen from Dorr. Where do you source it? You must tell us more. I hate working outside in this thick, humid heat....and painting is quite the chore. Good luck with that!

  3. Looking forward to finding out what an antique look on steroids is.
    Not sure about the Belgian linen. I think that is the linen Wendy Miller drew her patterns on. If so, I hooked one of her mats and did not care for it.

  4. I love both of these, I think you will just have to make both and you know you will, lol.
    I love the idea of trying it on the belgian linen and can't wait to see and hear about the process.
