HORSE RUGS with HOOKED BACKGROUNDS

With SPRING in the air and the delightful smells of mud as the sun warms the earth, my thoughts are  towards going for a horseback ride through the fields with the wind in my hair.
I had at one time 7 horses when I lived on the farm and not in the city . . .
how I sometimes miss them  .  . . today is one of those times . . . .
but  . . . look at the BACKGROUNDS in these OLD ANTIQUE RUGS-how very beautiful and INSPIRING I find them the more I look . . ..out-lines for CONTRAST- here and there . .  .   straight directional hooking lines or wavy wherever lines of all values . . . . . the happy couples are  each off to - I wonder what will it be land?or maybe 'Happy Ever After Land'?
