Antique Reproduction Hook-a-Long

I found an antique rug photo on Pinterest
turned it into a gray scale image

simplified version for hooking

I started this Saturday on Facebook
you are most welcome to hook along with me

I drew my rug with cats in the lower corners

another antique rug from Pinterest
might be some inspiration for the background

I've started my hooking using pre cut strips from the baskets
will also be cutting as I go for desired colors

Day 1

Day 3

the blue flower pot
was inspired by my salt glaze pottery collection
subject to change as hooking progresses

Olivia the other day
complaining that Melrose was looking at her

trying to look innocent

Picked up my laptop from the shop today...
even with a smart phone and a Kindle I sort of felt lost...

I hope to hook along, but even though retired, finding the time is challenging. You are off to a great start!

Oh dang, I've already started my new project. Otherwise I'd jump on the bandwagon. But that antique is in my collection of oldies but goodies so may end up doing it one day anyway.

Looking good and love your colors.
