Antique Sampler and Rugs

all images from Pinterest

not normally a red person
this sampler keeps calling to me

wonderful colors in this one
so very scrappy

this is one I'd like to recreate
if I ever feel like hooking again

taking a break from sewing room work today
didn't even wash the curtains as I'd planned

I added a backing and signed a hooked chairpad
finished stitching on the wool backing strips on one rug
starting on another
cut out some wool applique shapes

progress vs procrastination

I'm already thinking ahead for my next rug and plan (for now) to have a geometric using worms in a sorta hit and miss.

Uh clean?#*! Did some wash, changed sheets and finally vacuumed again today....oh even dusted a room. Then my back started to hurt so stopped. Seemed line a good enough reason for me.
