This didn't get any response in the weekly H-A challenge so I am posting it here for comments.

Nope! I will say that it is a craft item and this view of the item is normally not seen.

Well, nobody's guessing so here is the answer. It is the back side of a latch-hook rug. This particular one is a picture of a soaring Bald Eagle. I may be wierd but I like working on latch-hook projects. They are very time consuming but I enjoy them just the same. I have done two rather large ones (roughly 3 ft x 4 ft) and several smaller ones. This is one of the smaller ones.

If anyone is interested, I'll shoot a picture of the completed project. It is not framed, yet, but you'll get the ideal.

Here is one of the large ones I did a couple of years ago. It is basically a hand hooked rug that you hang on the wall.

I also enjoy latch-hooking Cal, although I probably wouldn't tell the fellows at the local bar about it. I can certainly appreciate how much work and time went into that bear and the result was well worth it!

my mom used to make hooked rugs when i was little. braided ones, too. i think the largest hooked rug she ever made was about 5'x8'. very tedious work, but the result was well worthwhile...
