HOOKED RUG BORDERS

HUGE BORDER with CAT RUG
This little cat rug for some reason catches my fancy!The large  beautiful border should be the central focus but the little cat draws me in . . . ..the expression says it all . . .whatever you wish it to be . . . .I like the little checkerboard stitch  in black and white  . . .that is 2 strips, of different colours, hooked together in a line . . .used  as outline between the cat square and the border . . .
 The cat seems to be hooked in a texture . . .. it looks cartoonish . . . .and the huge BORDER looks like a Japanese wood carving . . .. Simple colour choices . . . .a well loved cat!! Nice rug!
.I am sorry not to know who hooked it  but I saw this rug at the Shelburne Vermont rug show last November . . .. .
