Broken Flower

This is the 3rd antique reproduction rug I completed in the last 2 months, although I still have the binding to do. I saw this in a book and knew I had to hook it. I used mostly 8.5 and 9 cut wool on linen. The size is 17" x 24". There's something about the teal and pink colors together that I love. And the dark border, which looks black but is actually a dark blue and black stripe, makes a nice contrast with the other colors. I will probably whip the edges with Norwegian yarn.  On to number 4 repro rug....
