Hooray…I was able to get in some hooking today and my Magdalena-style rug “Old Crow Farm” is Finished in 37 days!!! It was getting pretty heavy to move around by finishing time!!!! 🙂
Of course, this is my own “domestic zoo”…and as I told you at the start, all the animals were either on or did visit our Vermont farmhouse home down that country road! This really looks to me like a rug made by someone who was using up leftovers from other projects and enjoying working with simple motifs…and, of course, that is just what I was doing!!!!
Thank you so much for coming along on this adventure with me…I have enjoyed your company! If you are working on a rug and have a question for me I’ll certainly try to answer it…! However, you know by now the way I work is a bit “unconventional” …but I do get the rugs hooked even with my constant experiments!!!!!! …lol…
I will rest for a while and then see what adventure I do next…always fun to see what designs pop into my head..!!! I do have a few other small projects that I should do…so we’ll just wait and see what happens!
I hope you have been inspired to try your own rug in the style of Magdalena or try a reproduction of one of her rugs. I’m sure you will have a good time as you have such freedom with motif and colour!!!
So here is Progress on Day 37…the Finish of “Old Crow Farm” (with all the hooking done it is now 26 x 51 inches) We’ll see what it is after it is all steamed. Not my best photography but it is hard for me to get pictures of these larger rugs as they are a bit wider than my “clothespin board”!!!
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
