Just a Couple Pieces of Candy...Eye Candy that is

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.



  1. Hi Saundra,
    Thanks for another great show!! Always fun to see the many different styles and colors! Sounds like you are one busy lady and I'm sure you will look forward to some much needed hooking time when you can finally relax!
    Take care and have a great week, my friend!
    Heart Hugs~

  2. Life sure can get in the way of our fun time 🤣

  3. I love all of Molly's rugs...hope you'll have more time for hooking this week

  4. Love these mats!

    Especially , the pie and flowers!
    Oh how sweet,,
    That would be sooo fun to hook,,,
    Sunny today,,, yeah!
    Rain gone,,,
    Thanks saundra!

    Outside work today,,,

  5. I think I have fixed my No Reply Blogger setting but the link you
    gave is outdated as Blogger has updated their look several times
    since then.
    I find it all frustrating. Just when I think I have it figured out...
    Their Help Desk email doesn't bother responding to me.
    Love, love love the simplicity of these rugs!

  6. Love those ducks. No wonder they were a customer favorite!

  7. Those lions are fantastic.... very realistically and artistically rendered! We’ve had several days of beautiful summery weather in a row and I am trying to spend as much time as possible digging in the dirt... So hooking and blogging (and everything else indoors) is being slighted. ~Robin~
