SOME RUG CHANGES.....


I'D BEEN THINKING OF CHANGING SOME MOTIFS
ON A COUPLE OF RUGS I HOOKED A FEW YEARS
AGO AND FINALLY DID IT.
I'M GLAD I DID.  THEY BOTH LOOK MUCH
MORE ANTIQUE LIKE TO ME NOW.
ABOVE IS THE ORIGINAL WAY I HOOKED
LIGONIER DUO BY WOOLLEY FOX.


 ABOVE IS MY CHANGE.  I USED SOME MUTED BROWNS
FOR THE FLOWERS.  IT GOES SO MUCH BETTER WITH
WHAT I HAVE IN THIS CORNER (BELOW).


I'D ALSO BEEN EYEING THE BIRDS IN MY 
ADAPTATION OF A MAGDALENA BRINER EBY
RUG.  MAGDALENA (1832-1915) WAS 
FROM PENNSYLVANIA AND HOOKED MANY RUGS
IN HER LIFETIME. I DIDN'T LIKE THE COLOR
OF MY ORIGINAL BIRDS AND WANTED 
SOMETHING MORE SUBTLE AND NEUTRAL.
MAGDALENA'S RUG IS CALLED 
DOGS, CATS, BIRDS AND TURTLE.
THE LOWER LEFT BIRD IS WHERE THE TURTLE
SHOULD BE BUT I CHANGED MINE TO 
ANOTHER BIRD AND JUST TO BE QUIRKY, GOING
IN THE WRONG DIRECTION! 


MY CHANGE IS BELOW. I LIKE IT MUCH BETTER NOW.
THOSE BIRDS DON'T POP OUT AT ME ANYMORE!
I LEFT THE DARK RED BORDER. I'D HAVE TO TAKE
THE BINDING OFF TO CHANGE THAT AND THERE
WAS NO WAY I WAS GOING TO DO THAT!
THE REDS IN THE BIRDS WAS BRIGHTER SO THEY
NEEDED TO GO. BOTH OF THESE RUGS ARE IN OUR
LIVING ROOM AT PRESENT.


AFTER I DID THE NEW HOOKING I STEAMED THOSE
AREAS GOOD AGAIN SO THE RUG WOULD LIE FLAT.

UNTIL NEXT TIME MY FRIENDS......LORI
