ANTIQUE DOG and KITTEN RUG

ANTIQUE BACKGROUNDS-
e.g.hook with what you have on hand!
This delightful little  mat shows how simple a rug can be and how CHARMING!
Animals look almost cut out templates traced onto the backing and then a couple of trees placed  on either side . . .hooked with what was available . . .and therefore looks almost MONOCHROMATIC in colour feeling . . .
also this rug works from all sides design wise . . . . the straight lines in background add well to the composition . . .I am sure it was by accident!
the little kitten seems to be looking at us  either way  . . . .
