In the previous post I commented you may recognize the rug by that one panel partially hooked. Uh, and then maybe not. Just realized this morning that it hadn't been posted on my blog previously. So here is that beauty which is now the object of my affections and is on my frame.
This antique Patriotic Shirred Rug is dated 1830, measures 32.5 x 71.5 and sold for $3,690. I drew mine out measuring 16 x 35 which will be plenty long for me to display on my harvest table.
Comparing what I've hooked and the original think I'll put a little wool in the pot to dirty up some wool before I continue.
