The Olde Pomegranate Tree**
Taken from an 1800s hooked rug, this pattern is interesting and naive. Birds and lions, suns and flowers sit on either side of the old tree. This is a photo of the antique rug, which uses a dark background and a variety of golden tones. The Hook-a-Month project used a lighter background and employed blues, grays and rust tones.

Deer and Urn
I found two old rugs that I loved, so I combined their elements into one new design. The border is from one rug and the central design of the deer and urn are from the other. The antique rugs were from the early 1900s.
20 x 30 inches
Hearts & Diamonds
This design was offered as my Spring Hook-a-Month project in 2009. The photo shows the circa 1875 antique rug that sold at auction. I believe it is a one-of-a-kind, as it does not appear to me like a commercial pattern. I hope you love it as much as I do!

My friend and sister hooker, Polly Minick, had a friend who owned this antique rug at one time. Polly gave her permission for me to offer it as the Hook-a-Month project for Spring 2010. I made some slight tweaks in the design, at Polly’s request, to honor her friend who has passed away.

The antique rug on which this Hook-a-Month design was based, is an antique shirred rug. Shirred rugs were made from woolen strips that were drawn up and sewn onto a linen foundation. The design is naïve and most probably was executed with old clothing. The antique rug was probably from New England, circa 1830-1840. This is my adaptation as a hooked rug.

This is a wonderful rug to use wools that have been married together - several reds, several blacks and browns, and several tans (lights and darks) will get you this great aged look.
Awesome, isn’t it? I did not do a thing to this one . . . It is perfect just as it sits!

This design is a combination of two antique rugs - the birds and the star are from one rug and the arching border is from another. The two old rugs really coordinated well into this adaptation rug.
