At least they are new discoveries to me. I made a previous post about Molly Nye Tobey rugs HERE. Then sometime later received a very nice email from Tom Tobey saying she was his grandmother. He said he and his sisters had a collection of her rugs which were not among those previously shown.
This morning I received a photo of two rugs which Tom owns and were hooked for him as a kid. This one is of Carousel Horses.
This Sailboat and Automobiles hooked rug was made from a childhood drawing by Tom. Tom said both of these rugs were hooked about 1965-1966.
What wonderful heirlooms and fond memories of his grandmother. I was given permission to share these. Tom has other siblings who also own rugs by Molly Nye Tobey and am hoping they will take photos of them so I can share them with you too.
My issues still aren't over. The one cgfi keeps wanting to trip and have a couple other rooms which still don't have electricity but may be connected to that cgfi. But I did buy 4 phones and ceiling fan. The fan needs to be installed by my son and need to purchase a small TV to replace the one which died. My fishpond pump may be dead too but perhaps that is connected to the gcfi which keeps tripping.
Honestly, I've got ptsd from this ~ went to the farmer's market to buy tomatoes and a woman dropped her phone on the table and I jumped out of my skin. Another shopper had her small pup with her and it had a piercing bark and I jumped. Hope my nerves calm down soon.
