This and That

For our enjoyment I will post some old rug photos.  Those and the intermittent hooking I'll accomplish today will be my only fun today.  Why you ask?  Because today is liquids and doctor's concoction ~ it is prep day for my endoscopy and colonoscopy tomorrow.   Now don't you feel better about your day? 😒

Will start off with a geometric from the 1900s which measures 18 x 36.
This cow rug was hooked 19th century and measures 24 x 36.
Lovely old Peacock rug below but don't have dimensions.  Friend Pamm Gunn hooked an adaptation of this.
The rug below measures 34 x 79 and was said to be an early Waldoboro.
A Homestead Landscape from the Donna Fields collection hooked in the 1900s.  Measurements are 24 x 39.
From Brook Crossing, South Promfret, VT is where this fish rug was located.  Hooked in the 19th century it measures 21 x 36.
This well worn rug must have had a special meaning to the hooker.  Am thinking it was the person's property, with flowers, tree and family plot on the land.  From a private collection in Virginia it measures 18 x 37.
Although this doesn't look like an antique thought I'd show it anyway.
Two glasses of the concoction have been consumed with 8 more to go.  The only pleasure I'm getting out of this is crossing off the glass images  on the instruction sheet as I drink.  
Enjoy your Sunday.
