An original Design by Deana David: Valentine Bouquet

Everything old is new again. I find so many antique rugs that are desperately in need of repair, and sometimes, the amount of TLC needed is so much that I end up just stabilizing them and keeping them for decorative use only. These unique pieces deserve to be celebrated though, and since antique and primitive designs lend themselves best to looped latch hooking, I used this project as an opportunity to recreate and pay loving tribute to a classic design. I replaced the loose flower stem with a tidy basket to give it more of a streamlined look that's easier to create with the looped latch hook technique.
