Hooking right along!!!!! 🙂
I think I told you at the start that I was doing this rug as a kind of “memory” rug too (like the last bluebird rug!) of our life in the country in Vermont and the name of my business there. Here is a photo of our little farmhouse down that country road! And my business sign. We lived on 3 1/2 acres just outside of Derby, Vermont…in what is called the Northeast Kingdom!
We were about 5 miles from the Canadian border and Joe had relatives in Derby Line…right on the border.
He loved this area and had spent 10 years of his childhood in the area, both in Quebec and in Derby Line…so his heart had never left this place. After living here in Vermont for 21 years, I understood his feelings and I loved it too!
I thought that a Magdalena-style rug would be a fun way to put in some of the animals and birds around our property. ( I didn’t have room this time to put in the great blue heron who used to come and STAND on a large rock in the pond across the road then wade in and fish!!! ) …( I am laughing because I just reread my post and the image of the Heron sitting on the rock and fishing would be quite a sight..!!!!) …lol…
Also, I have the Bradley Primitive rug in my apartment living room that has some little old and antique things (the cat and I are included!!!!!!) …lol… And some Victorian touches with modern bits and some of my rugs on the walls and floors as well. The loveseat is a burgundy brocade so I thought putting a “primitive country” rug in the mix would be fun and give the Bradley a rest from time to time!!!
My Décor would certainly be called “eclectic” (!!!) 🙂
So here is Progress on Day 7…another Crow arrives on the scene today!
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
