A Pine Burr RUG
I was invited to see the textiles collected by a retired KU professor, Doris Stubeck. As we looked through her delicate, intricate pieces, my eye kept wandering over to a rug nearby. I could only see a corner of it, but it looked interesting. The fabrics seemed very practical, like they were from worn-out clothes.
It's a small rug, about 2 1/2' wide by 3 1/2' long.
Here's a detail shot. Doris found it at an antique shop/estate sale/garage sale years ago, as she did much of her collection. She doesn't use a computer, but she said it would be ok to show it here. I am delighted she shared it.
