Well, I'm not really sure it's my 200th post because the counter on my posts says this is 197 but when I posted the Valentine one it said 200??? Doesn't matter, close enough and I am GIVING AWAY this Golden Pony hooked rug!!!
Are you EXCITED!!!!! GOOD!!!
This little rug measures 9x10 inches and it would sell for $115.00. I wanted to do something really special for this give away so I did a horse rug. I also have my new web site up and running, there are still some tweaks to be done on it. Updates seem to take a long to to change, this is aggravating!
Here is the link to my web site Liberty Homestead Rugs, go have a look.
The rug backing is a hairy linen, that is what the white hair looking stuff is sticking up through the wool. I have snipped a lot of it off but it keeps popping through. This is not the usual backing I use, my normal linen is not hairy but instead looks like burlap.
This is a close up of the Gold Pony's head, click on any of these pictures to enlarge to see the details. By doing this you can also see the different textures of wool that was used to hook this rug.
I used many different colors of browns, brown/blacks and a bluish black/brown. Pony is several different colors of gold and for the most part the gold is a mottled giving it a rich antique color.
This is a close up of the flower in the upper corner of the rug. Since this flower has some fine details I cut the 1/4" strips into with scissors. Love doing that because the strips are then a bit uneven which gives it a more antique look.
Now to the details of how you can win this rug.
1.) you have to leave a post here on my blog
2.) you have to tell me why you would like to win this rug; this doesn't have anything to do with winning, but I would just like to hear what you have to say
I will put all names into a hat and draw out the winners name, two weeks from today on March 1. That will give everyone plenty of time to get your name in the drawing!
I'm excited and can't wait to see who will win this little Golden Pony!!!! Good Luck!
