PRIMITIVE RUGS

PRIMITIVE SCHOONER with SCROLLS
hooked in Digby Nova Scotia by unknown rug hooker

This rug is in my old collection of rugs I started well before I hooked my own rugs.
I got it in Annapolis Royal at an antique store although it is not very old . . . .
It was hooked using acrylic fabrics (not nice texture feeling)and one thing I have learned is NEVER hook  sails in  WHITE when hooking sailing vessels . . . BECAUSE ? . . . 
it has to be washed clean every week!!!!
These scrolls are certainly simple !but . . . . . 
My tastes have become slightly more sophisticated since I acquired this rug!
I think primitives can be a bit more interesting now in 2010 with all the rugs to look at.I know that this rug hooker probably had never seen many, if any ,other  hooked rugs  . . .
