I love replicating antique adaptation rugs but also design my own. Looking at old rugs in Early American Life magazine was my inspiration to learn to hook.

Throwback Thursday - Flashback Friday
Hope you can find something fun to think about or dream about to put your mind in a kinder place. Today's chuckle was that for me as I revisited a fun time.

THIS and THAT
A rug named My Sacred Memories circa 1910-19 measures 27 x 38.
For the feline of the species, let's have a Tabby Cat with Apple Blossoms added to the show. Sorry, no dimensions or date.
Now for a canine.....Recumbent Dog from Lancaster County is dated 1890 and with initials on the left of EG.

The "Plus One" Project
Finally the big reveal of the rug pattern on my frame. Even if I'd shown you the unhooked photo of the pattern it would be obvious it was a flag. You may have thought it was the US flag until you saw the black and white hooked part. Then you would have known immediately it was a Thin Blue Line flag. That is why it was given the temporarily name "Plus One" until I'd had a chance to show you more of the hooked area.
With what seems like a war on our Police throughout the United States I've been saddened with each report of an attack and angered with a senseless death. And the recently brutal beating of Cpl. Keith Heacook just 16 miles down the road from me hit too close to home. I didn't know him but my heart hurt just as if he was family.
