I love replicating antique adaptation rugs but also design my own. Looking at old rugs in Early American Life magazine was my inspiration to learn to hook.

Country Cottage is the name I gave this antique adaptation which was beautifully hooked by Linda Scheffler. The pattern measures 30 x 38 and Linda used various size wool strips to achieve the look. She hooked the border in #10, the background in #9.5, the flowers and leaves in #5 and #7 cuts. Linda said she started it in a class with Diane Stoffel at Sioux Falls rug camp.
This wonderful hooked Country Cottage was hooked by Pam Gunn.
Below is the original antique and think both ladies did the antique justice.
