Friend Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) did a blog post and mentioned me and the Magdalena rugs she is going to show at some venue. While I might have hooked more Magdalena rugs than her (not sure about that tho) there are many more Magdalena's which I've not yet hooked.
Thought I'd post those Magdalena rugs here now in case there is someone out there who hasn't seen them on my blog yet. I believe the first one was Domestic Zoo which was hooked 2009. According to the booklet out on Magdalena, there is some controversy as to whether it really was designed by Magdalena. Yet there is no other 1800's hooker given credit for it.
The following year (2010) I hooked Magdalena's Dog and Crows. This is a flash photo which does not represent the true colors of the rug.
Moving right along in the year of 2010 I also hooked McCue Eagle which presently resides at my front door. It pleases me to see that beauty each day I walk thru the door to go for my walk. Again the blinking flash destroys the true colors ~ it is not that bright.
Magdalena's Dog was hooked in 2012 at home without a teacher, it is a smallish design so was a piece of cake.
Lollipop Bouquet was hooked in 2013 without a teacher ~ well Magdalena's color plan WAS my teacher and used the wool I had. Honestly I was hesitating doing this piece because there are 66 circles. YES, I counted them. But this rug was the most fun and so many colors can be pulled from your worm (noodle) baggies.Barb Carroll class, which is always a delight. And as always was happy with my rug after her color planning.
Also in 2014 I hooked the Folkart Horse in a smaller size.
Wow, I was on a Magdalena frenzy in 2014 as I also hooked Olde Ducks.
It is among the rugs hanging on the wall in this computer room as well as some others.
In 2019 I decided since one Lollipop Bouquet was fun, two would be double the fun. Again, the flash distorts the color and my rug is NOT this bright and white. So I hooked the Great Granddaughter's Rug, which until it was donated was in the possession of THE Great Granddaughter of Magdalena.
If you want to learn more about Magdalena Briner Eby you can buy her booklet . I don't sell the booklet but am sure you can find it on Amazon.
However I do sell the patterns. And while not all of them are listed on my web site I've probably drawn them for others in various sizes. So contact me if there is a Magdalena rug you desire.
