This rug represents Shake Rag Street in Mineral Point Wisconsin designed and hooked by Sally Kallin
The wool is luscious.
Maggie is holding her early looking one. I had so many favorites! But this might be my favorite favorite today! Nina Fletcher Little would have approved I think. This is a very wide cut. Glad you can be a mouse in my pocket and share this. e
added on Thursday: Today I bought back the first Bird and Pomegranate rug I hooked in 1982, signed and dated. I will resell it, after a bit. I sold it very reluctantly in the 80’s provided I could borrow it back for photographing. But when Joan M wanted to put it on her cover I was denied access to it, the new owner saying no I want it to be just for me! I was so distressed I hooked a second one just as large! (Big) It was pictured and went on the cover. I sold it later for a strong sum when we were buying the red cape and the little farm. At a later date I hooked a smaller size of the pattern and granddaughter Sarah owns that one which is pictured in my rug book. I am delighted to see the rug again and that it is fine shape. It has not faded which is a tribute to Evelyn Newton’s dying, as it is all her wool. e
