MY OLD RUGS

I have been home sick with bronchitis for the past three days...can you tell...two posts within 24 hours! Feeling like I have a 90 year old set of lungs...I am still able to get on the computer..amazing..LOL! These are some of my older rugs that I had taken pictures of but were to lazy to post and now at 4 AM..unable to sleep..here goes:





The eagle rug was one of the first rugs I had ever made...I think it was my second one to be exact. I had it in hiding, because the kitties used to love to use it as a clawing rug. I had to make several repairs..now it hangs on the wall.



This small grouping, hangs in my sewing room. The two little cat rugs I adapted from antique rugs I had seen in a book, THe long narrow flower baskets rug is a design from Kindred Spirits. The small pumpkin rug was hooked and purchased from Sherry Kristoff last fall.

I'm in the process of hooking a rug, my own design, using some really different colors than I am used to. I am hoping to have it hooked soon...having some background difficulties. My creative juices just don't seem to flow like they used too!

Love this grouping of rugs -- they are all wonderful! Must be inspirational having them in your sewing room. If I knew how to hook a rug -- I would have them everywhere!
Feel better soon.

I feel your pain. Hubby and I both have bronchial coughs. I love all your rugs. I just can't get enough pictures of other people's work. I learn so much.
Feel better soon,
Courtney

Wonderful rugs and they look nice grouped together like that. I hope you feel better. I am still recovering from mine, really took a lot out of me and I guess it gets harder as we get older.

Love your rug collection, Bobbie. The Eagle piece reminds me of a needlepoint I did for my dad decades ago. I wonder if it's still around somewhere?

I love them all but the Eagle and the long narrow one at the bottom are favs. Looking forward to seeing what you're working on!
Feel better soon!
