Yesterday, after buying the two rugs I posted about, I got on a roll and purchased two more!
However, these are in really bad shape! This first one I acquired for $25. It is 2’5” x 3’8”.
I’m considering this as my next step in my rug hooking education……Restoration 202.
Pretty sad huh? I just couldn’t help myself…..I’m hoping there is some old rug hooker up in the sky who will give me the will and determination to go through with this.
This next rug is in great shape compared to the previous one. The braided border put me over the edge! I’ve learned to braid, but it’s not easy…..at least not for me!
I acquired this one for $40. It is 2’7” x 3’3”. Really in pretty good shape, but the middle of it is kind of chewed up.
I think it will be a great challenge to try and match the wools and decide what was in the middle of the rug above…..plain….another flower?
Today I’ve been perusing the net looking for information on rug restoration. Here are some links that I’ve found helpful.
I’ll post more on these rugs as they arrive at my house!
If you have restored a rug, I’d love to hear from you with any tips or pointers you might have.
