Day 11 of Heart Inspiration

Today's rugs both come from the Canada Textile Museum found here. Again, this rug shows you that you can make quite an impact with just a few colors.

Hooked Rug  Place Made: North America: Canada, Central Canada, Ontario, Waterloo County  People: Mennonite  Period: Early 20th century  Date: c 1911

Yes, this rug has hearts in it but I love the background and border of this rug.  Just think about how many worms you could use hooking a rug in this manner.  I'm not wild about the duck in this rug but picture another motif in its place.  What an impact with a cat, horse or dog motif.  You can find the original rug here.
