The most sedate of the group, this pile floral rug has lost a lot of its color. Notice the leaf designs that create the grid for the flower motifs: small leaves similar to a feather design running in one direction, and single leaves end-to-end in the other direction.
The ragged edges on the next rug suggest that it has received much wear.
It must have glowed in the dark when it was new!
One rarely finds dates on rugs so this pile rug is unusual with its "1984" worked into the design.
This dark pink rug still sings and dances despite years of wear.
This rug is right off the charts. In my mind, it's so ugly it's cute.
And last, but not least, and my favorite as well: an eight-pointed star design. It must be the stars that please me--so quilt-like. Or is it the wild colors and crazy border?
Drat! I should've taken this one home, too.
When so many gorgeous rugs are displayed at a craft show, they overwhelm the spectator. It is difficult to "see" much of anything. I have enjoyed taking a second and closer look and I hope you have enjoyed the magic of these rugs and carpets as well.
