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.

Cape May Rug Show Cont'd.
Let's continue with the show of finished rugs, shall we? This first Hutchinson style rug was designed and hooked by our fearless leader/teacher Caroline (Eagles Nest Woolens)
Shari hooked the Liberty Geo. Washington rug.
Two Big Flowers on the left was hooked by Leslie and my Scalloped Flowers to its right.
This humongous whale rug is Caroline's also and she explained how she hooked the water, but also said the whale was hooked higgly piggly.
Below is Mother with Fishbowl drawn from photo and hooked by moi.
An antique adaptation, I think, but can't read the hooker's name or other info.
A couple more of my rugs.
A corner of Shari's rug (previously shown) and the Fish rug info I cannot read.
Mary hooked Aunt Tilly's Garden below.
This is a geometric with names but can't read the label to learn the meaning behind the design nor the hooker. My guess is t hey are family names.
Sue hooked the Welcome Whale.
A few more rugs.
The cat you saw previously but not the giraffe. Unfortunately written in pencil and can't read the info.
Thursday night there was an outside concert featuring the Howard Street Ramblers which is a local popular band. You can see a few who have started to gather to get good seating. There is a sign posted stating the alcohol beverages must remain inside that yellow rope ~ on Chalfonte property.
I suppose those are the libations being offered by the hotel, with a 'tip' bowl.
There was a total of 14 rugs I took for the show but didn't get a photo of all of them as you regular followers would have seen them here when finished. The next blog post will be of the 'throw down' to see what we primitive hookers started at camp.
