Good Monday Morning everyone!! we had a nice quiet weekend..the weather was pretty decent.we actually had some sunshine..I know hard to believe...sunday was 55 and sunny..so we put the girls out in their kennel to soak up some of the sun..they didn't get their usual show though..no birds or squirrels..maybe once they smell it they will come back..anyway on saturday I made this penny rug..it is going to be listed on my etsy site after I am done posting on my blog..Theanne I used your vintage buttons for this one..I love how it turned out..I machine embroidered the design in the center onto a cream/peach colored piece of unfelted wool..nice and soft..and the hearts are recycled wool that I got from Laurie of Cats Craven.;)
This is the one I have almost finished..I have to attach the penny tabs and add vintage buttons to them and do the blanket stitch all the way around..I love how this one came out too..The design in the center comes from Robin of Bird in the hand primitives..I love her designs..I have a couple more I am going to make of her designs..cause I love them so much..
the pennies are easter eggs..one has a G for Gatherings...
and one has a P for primitive..I did the designs on the eggs free hand...and the eggs too..this will also go up on my etsy..or may try ebay to shake it up..if anyone is interested in either...just let me know..Today I am hoping to get hubby out for a walk in a quaint little neighborhood..will take photos to show you and then I am stopping at a quilt shoppe that carries more of this wool that I want to make these penny rugs..I tell you I am hooked..I love sitting on the couch at night with something to do..these are so much fun..well that is it for me..I hope you all have a great week ahead..I am making my doctors appt to get my kidney stones blasted hopefully soon..before they start causing me problems..and thank you all for the comments on my last post..and I did bring in the big guns to clean my stove..he used a butter knife and use it "flat" like and got it all up good as new..so now I know his ancient chinese secret..;) it was nice to hear from gals that I haven't heard from in a long time too..so thanks for commenting.;) take care and enjoy your day..;)
