Tree of Life

Here's an old rug hooking pattern I have. It's a Virginia Snow design. From the pictures on the pattern's flyer it looks to be from the mid 1920s or later. The Virginia Snow patterns were for punch needle and distributed through the Dexter Thread Company. I think Dexter sold their products through Sears Robuck. Anyway, I like the quirky tree of life design.Then again it could be just a whimsical flowering plant.

It is like crewel. I found it on ebay - for a steal - one of those times when there were no other bidders.
