A Pair of Floral Rugs

Two floral rugs worked from filet charts in "Le Filet Ancien au Point de Reprise V" (ca.1917-1920), courtesy of the Antique Pattern Library, found here -- (these charts are on pages 59 and 60 of the PDF).

Worked in DMC floss 815 (Garnet Medium) and 712 (Cream), on 40-count silk gauze

I "fixed" a few things that I felt were mistakes in the chart, and also shifted the daisy motif up 2 stitches to center it more inside the border.
