Thought maybe the BEM well had dried up but much to my surprise a friend of Anne's sent photos of Barbara Merry rugs she owns. This one is another Washer Woman rug, of which Anne indicated there were several.
Also a blog friend sent pictures of an article about Barbara which was in a 1986 issue of Country Home magazine. It might be difficult to read since it was a copy of an article.
The rug on this first page is one I hadn't seen before and appears to be quite large.
This is a closer view of the rug above which seems to be a seasonal rug.
Likewise, a closer look at the village rug just below the Gathering Sap.
I haven't seen the top rug in the page below and I'm guess it is a shirred rug as is the rug below that.
Below and top photo I haven't seen before either so there is still hope that one day I'll get better pictures of these rugs. And another Washer Woman hooked rug.
Yesterday I made a big pot of Minestrone soup and it was delicious. Had it for lunch today. Guess what will be my lunch tomorrow... and I've more so will also freeze some. Wonderful weather and hope everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day weekend.
