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.
