Patriotic Rug~One of My Favorite Designs
I just listed this rug on Ebay tonight. This design is the very 1st rug that I hooked. I saw it hanging in Country Craft Cupboard in Berlin, Ohio. Never thought that I could make it and that was the start for me hooking rugs. This pattern is out of Summer Spirits Need'l Love Threads Book. Since I was new to hooking, everyone thought I should hook a little rug first. Nooo, I was only going to hook that rug for my house and quit.LOL! We have the rug and it is a wonder I continued hooking. I HATED the backing, I didn't know what hairless linen was. The linen I bought wasn't hairless and it was flimsy. UGH!! I have learned ALOT since the first rug I hooked!!
I reduced the size, it's not as big as the original pattern. Hope everyone has a nice weekend!!
