An Antique Inspired Rug

I'm working on a number of rugs. Today I'll share the progress on this antique inspired rug. An American Prim Gathering group is working on this rug as a bit of a challenge. Two days of on and off hooking and this is what I have accomplished.

I've also been whipping on a few small mats....seems it takes me awhile to get that part done.

Sniff...Sniff....been battling a head cold and a sore throat. Very rare I have a cold. Maybe a chocolate chip cookie will help :)

Well back to the binding!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

I LOVE the colors you chose to hook this rug! It's looking so wonderful! I got the pattern enlarged today and still "overthinking" my plan of attack! LOL!! You are inspiring me to get in on linen!!
Hope those cookies help the sniffles.... rest up!!

I love that rug! I bought the pattern a while back but of course it is still in the closet. That's a lot of hooking in just 2 days off and on. I wish I could hook that fast.
I've also been fighting a cold or something so have a cookie for me, too.
Hugs :)

LOVE this one Ginger!! I have a think for antique rugs and their adaptations....(been working on "Welcome Cats" for half of forever now - although the term "working" is being used very loosely....) The colors are gorgeous....and I spy your initials??? Too cool!!! Hope you're feeling better....I'll have a few cookies for you too... ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
