For your viewing pleasure here are some old rugs. The Farm Scene below was hooked between 1900-20 and measured 29.5 x 39.5.
Dogs and Cats appears to be hooked or punched with yarn. No dimensions or date provided. Good use of left over worms.
Horse, birds and lollipop flowers with a braided edge was hooked early 1900's. It measures 20 x 28. Seems I've gone a tad color crazy as the blog progressed.
Back to more subdued colors is this Country Landscape from Pittsfield, MA, measuring 27 x 39. No date was mentioned.
A rug titled House at Night was hooked by Cecile Perrault, no date or dimensions were provided.
Here is a view of the back for those who like to see how much fading the front has endured. You might notice there is no cotton biding or burlap showing. That is because some women used to fold over the foundation before hooking near the edge so there is no worry about binding.....hooking thru the double layers protects the raw edge.
Ah, let's go for one more. Two dogs with a crazy quilt style background measuring 21 x 50.
Going to be a nice mild day today ~ sunny, less humid and...NO RAIN!!!!
