Both are beautiful but if I could I'd like very much that top folk rug. It is a real beauty, as are many of the delights you post here. A treat for my tired Monday eve eyes!

Heiko's granny has worked on a rug like this for the last year or two! It seems like an awful lot of work, but it looks nice.

Jättefina. En sådan färgglad till dörrmatta skulle vara trevligt... eller på toalettgolvet kanske..

you would love this book from the 1970s:

i've got it in my personal collection, found secondhand. but it's full of groovy old rugs and ideas for making them. thought of you when i was paging through it this morning (remembering this post)!

That's a great tip Tricia, thanks. Maybe that's what I should do when I'm sitting there old in my forever longed for, summerhouse - hook rugs.

Thanks for the how-to link, I'd love to try making a rug one day.
