Time for me to do another blog post and since I'm not prepared to show my progress (or lack there of) on the pumpkins will provide a mini rug show.
First up is a rug described by the auction house as Horse drawn wagon thru countryside. The crisp bright colors remind me of Maude Lewis's rugs except it is lacking bright yellow. This rug was hooked circa 1920 and measures 27 x 39.5.
Girls picking Cherries with Waldoboro technique applied in a few areas. It measures 23.5 x 37 early 20th century. I've never done the Waldoboro technique in a rug but have done proddy with hooking.
A Lion rug measuring 28 x 41 hooked late 19th early 20th century and the property of Carolyn and Tom Porter. Those are some very colorful leaves hooked hit and miss style.
I love this New England hooked Dove rug. Dimensions are 24 x 31.
