Leaping Deer & a favorite corner.






This little rug was started in October & I just finished it two weeks ago. Sometimes I can hook up a storm, & sometimes life happens & I get out of the habit. Regardless, I am glad to have this one finished. I wanted this rug to look old & to have an interesting background. I tried to make it look like a sunset. I really like the way it turned out. This is an Edyth Oneill pattern available through The Woolley Fox. I took two pics, one with flash & one without. To me the true color lies some where in between the two. I should have taken it in the day light. I don't know why the rugs are on their side, but I'm to tired to figure it out. Sorry!

I am also sharing a little spot in my home that separates the kitchen from the living room. It is also where the basement door is. I used some of that wallpaper that looks like an old log cabin here, & I really love the way it looks. I hung an old tobacco drying rack here, that I have been holding onto for a long time. I never had any where to put it till now. I love the narrow primitive stand. It is holding some old primers from my family of teachers, some neat old amber colored jars, and some cool stone colored crocks. I also have a small collection of old clothing hanging here too.

Great rug. You did a marvelous job picking the colors to make it look old! Rugs are so hard to photograph to get the true colors. I have a terrible time with it.
