As previously mentioned the last several rugs I've hooked have been someone else's design and I'm itching to hook another antique adaptation. The last blog post had some antique rugs in it but needed to do more searching thru my photo files to see what else might interest me. Here are a few of my picks so far.
Deer grazing with blue house hooked late 19 early 20th century and measures 32 x 52.5. Of course I wouldn't draw mine out that big. I'm a push over for deer and horses.
This early 18th century floral hooked rug has made my heart skip a beat for a few years now. This one will be challenging to make into a pattern because of the angle hanging from a chair.
Fruit Tree and 13 Birds late 19 century measures 36 x 55 and liked it when posted on my previous blog post.
was hooked early 20th century. Its stance reminds me of two black cat figurines which were on the fireplace mantle growing up. This rug measures 20 x 40.
OH!!! Almost forgot.... the reclining sheep always seems to be in the pick mix and a beautiful rug choice. So I've made the decision to save this for the next class with Kris Miller. Kris was Tanya Wishard's teacher when she hooked it and I love how hers turned out. As of this moment I don't have a class scheduled with Kris but hope to in the future.
So far I've 5 to think about as I work on the border of Over the Moon and finish binding Woolly Santa. Yeah, I know, it's taking me forever to bind that small santa but remember ~ I hate binding.
