Since I've been quite busy the last couple days with appointments, an order for 3 patterns which need drawing today, not much has been accomplished on Magdalena's rug.
First up is a Frost Lion on burlap which measures 30 x 60. Have no date as to when it was hooked.
Late 19th/early 20th century is this rug depicting two doves drinking from a fountain. It measures 33 x 48.
Blocks of color with numbers 3 and 2 hooked inside two of the blocks.
And you've recently seen this Duck and Ducklings before and is one of the antique adaptations I'm drawing today for a customer. This one will measure 22 x 35.
In a previous post dedicated to Molly Nye Tobey, I showed a few of her rugs, including this one of Apple Pie.
Unfortunately I misspelled her last name on that post but the post is so old that editing isn't possible. I received a nice comment from Molly Nye Tobey's grandson, Tom Tobey yesterday. However, Tom, since you are a NO-REPLY BLOGGER I am unable to reply to you as there is no address in which to send. Would love to see the rug your grandmother hooked of your drawing as a child.
Often I receive emails to which no mail can be sent due to being a No-Reply blogger. If you would like to double check to make sure you aren't one of those dreaded people you can find out HOW TO FIX NO-REPLY BLOGGER HERE.
