A Dear Friend Did Something Very Special

I have a dear friend, viagra that did something very special. She made me this rug. Last Summer, Louise, told me that she would make me a hooked rug. I was thrilled! She asked me to look for a pattern that I liked. I looked in many of my books, at old hooked rugs, but I kept coming back to this one, and decided on it. That was about 3 months ago. This past week we had a day out planned, with another friend, Denise. We met at her house, and Louise brought the rug with her. I was almost speechless when I saw it! It looks just like the original, which was made in PA., in the 19th century. She did a fabulous job, and words could never express my appreciation. I have decided to hang it at a place of honor on a living room wall.

Louise put the year it was made in the design of the rug, but she did it in such a way that it doesn’t jump out at you.
Love that.

Can you see the 20, it’s on one side, then the 08 is on the other. I love that idea, Louise.

On the back she attached a label, with her name, date, and where it was made.

It’s perfect, and I will treasure it forever, and for the umpteenth time, Louise, thank you so very much.

Happy day, Carole

    What a treasure!!…. I’ll have to tell my mom to come over and peek at it… She’s been really getting into rug-hooking as of late…. Perhaps some day I’ll learn to hook as well…. For now, my fingers are covered in papier mache!……

    Thanks for sharing it with us! What a special and talented friend you have!

    Carole,
    The cat hooked rug from your friend is absolutely fabulous!! I love it!! What a lucky gal you are. I am about ready to start another rug, and I am thinking it will be a cat rug too, but probably a black cat, since we just lost our dear Pepper. I just love rug hooking and the primitive style, by the way, your new rug would look great in my house too! :) Kathy

    Carole,

    You do, indeed, have a caring friend in Louise. Any handmade gift, is a gift straight from the heart. The gift of “time” is our greatest gift, and it takes alot of time to hook a rug. And what a beautiful rug it is!

    Hi Carole,

    Louise’s rug is fabulous!!!!! I don’t think the picture does it justice. I am glad you showed the date, because it really shows some wonderful colors. Yes, I think Louise (Weezy) most have lived back then. She is quite a talant. I can picture where you are putting the rug and I think it is a perfect spot. Do still have your old dollies and stuffed animals on the childs bench? Take a picture of it when you get it hung on the wall. I can’t wait to see it. I think your parlor is finally done.
    Love ya,
    Carole
