I found these sites late last night. I couldn't get to sleep and entered "antique hooked rugs" into my search engine. I spent HOURS looking at pictures of beautiful textiles.
Thought I'd share them with you.
The first one is www.rahmanan.com
This one is circa 1880 and is listed under American hooked rugs. What a website. There's over 400 pages of antique rug photos!!!
The other one I spent a lot of time on was, www.cyberrug.com
I spent the whole weekend hooking on my antique star adaptation. Talked to my oncologist Friday and she said the ECHO cardiogram wasn't normal and she is trying to get me into a cardiologist asap. She told me to take it easy and No Exertion this weekend! Gee...why didn't she scare me? (For once I followed her advice though.)
Hope you enjoy looking at the antique rugs! Don't stay up all night!
