Antique Cow Rug

—————————————— ***** —————————————

A week or so ago, I posted a picture of the cow rug (based upon an antique rug) I was working on for my 10 minute Deanne Fitzpatrick Rug Hooking challenge, which you can find Here.
Not surprising, I had many inquiries about it and it's is no wonder.... just look at the precious little face.  



It just makes me smile every time I see it.   

Here is a picture of the antique rug 



And here are some pictures of  my version of it





You can see that I strayed from replicating the original to a T.  Hooking the  background behind the cow in brown and blue  just didn't make sense to me so I stuck with the blue color.  Also, I changed the flowers and leaves around the cow a little just to make more room to hook. The thought of finishing the scalloped edge was intimidating so I added a border around the edge.  I'm sure that the cow is supposed to have 3 teats but in the original it looks like only two were hooked so that’s what I hooked.   I can add the third one into the pattern if want it.


I have the pattern available for purchase if you would like to hook this sweet little rug. It is drawn on linen and measures 16 x 21 inches and is $42 plus $5 shipping first class. You can purchase by clicking the buy it now button.

Patriotic Flag is available as a digital download pattern

Hello friends,

Many of you have inquired about my Patriotic Flag Needle Punch Pattern and asked if it would be available as a punch needle pattern.   AND the answer is Yes!  I'm going to try something a little different  and sell it as a digital PDF pattern from my blog through paypal. In the photos below, the first  Patriotic Flag was punched by Judy Estep using Valdani threads and I punched the bottom Patriotic Flag using DMC flosses.  The Digital pattern contains a floss chart for both Valdani and DMC and also thread placement charts for both threads.  The size of Judy's PN is 3.25 by 4 inches and mine is 3.75 x 4.8.  




Click the button to buy the Digital PDF paper Needle Punch Pattern for $8.00.  I will email you the pattern.  If you do not receive it right away, please understand that I may be away from my computer or phone and unable to do so right away.
