Another giveway

Yes, it's true, another giveaway to celebrate the website. I'll announce the winner tomorrow around 10:00 pm.

Because I love Magdalena Briner's rugs, I am offering the book about Magdalena Briner's rugs and life.

 This book was written by Kathy Wright and Evelyn Lawrence and is a must have particularly if you love old rugs. These ladies did a fabulous job giving the reader a better understanding of her life and her rugs. The pictures in the book documenting her rugs are so inspirational.

To be entered in the giveaway, kindly leave a message in the comment section telling everyone why you love Magdalena's style of hooking.

I've been hooking Magdalena's rugs for years. My favorite rug is her two crow and dog rug.


 My logo rug below was based on this rug.



Here is my small version of her two horse rug.



Until tomorrow, Maria

Hey Maria, love your new website! Will we ever meet again?
I love, love, love Magdalena's rugs for their natural, simple designs and wonderful backgrounds. I hope to hook one of her designs soon.
Goodluck with the new website.

I think I love this style of rug so much because it's naieve (sp) and innocent - makes me think of simpler times.

Such a sweet giveaway! I have to admit that I was not a big fan in the beginning of my hooking years. But now as time has gone by, I am drawn more and more to it. I enjoy working with hit or miss style hooking, and refer back to her pieces when I can see a picture of them to help me out. Good luck to the winner!

Hooking a Magdalina rug or a Magdalina style rug is on my bucket list. Love her special animals and the wonderful backgrounds!

Hope I am the lucky winner.

I just completed my first Magdalena rug! Not only was it a fun rug to hook but I've received a million & one compliments on it. Magdalena was truly a woman ahead of her time. Her designs are not only primitive but priceless. I would love to own a book about her life. Sher

Magdalina rugs represent true American Folk Art and that's why I love them!

I love the Magdalena rugs. I love the horses and the dogs. In your previous blog post those leaves immediately made me think of Magdalena - that's what her leaves would look like in her rugs. That's what I saw anyway! Thanks for the wonderful offers Maria.

Love the new website Maria...more than a few rugs on my "oooh I want to hook that" list...mostly all of them...

Please enter me in your generous book giveaway...somehow this one is missing from my library...could it be I spend on wool first?!?

Annie said...

Hi Maria... I suppose I fell in love with Magdalena's work as it seems to "match" the artwork and fabrics that I have in my home. I suppose I've been a bit Magdalena myself for a long time.

Oh I would love to be entered in this drawing, you can not get a more primitive folk art style than Magdalena's. Her book would be an added welcome to my library. Thanks so much for sharing!

It is so sweet of you to offer such a wonderful book as a giveaway. I first saw Magdalena's rugs on the Wooley Fox website and loved how she jumbled all the animals around. Then I fell in love with her horses, having been a competitive rider for some 30 years. Winning that book would be such a treat.

I fell in love with Magdalena's rugs. It must not only be her beautiful heartfelt style but anytime you add an animal in the mix, I'm "hooked!" I just drew out the Lollipop bouquet and have the vase and about half the circles hooked. I am letting myself not be too restricted with rules and am just loving the process

Jennifer said...

I am a new rug hooker & am just discovering Magdalena's work. I love her simple & heartwarming style. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win such a treasure!!!

Ann said...

I love her rugs because they remind me of my grandmother's rugs - primitive. Thanks for the chance to win this book. ~Ann
