Penny Rug Completion...

Hi people, it's me again.....
Ok, I know I said I wasn't going to blog any more this week but THIS needed a blog entry:

My First Penny Rug
Started: April 5, 2009
Finished: April 7, 2009


I'm pretty doggone pleased with how it turned out! So much so in fact....that I purchased 3 more penny rug kits and a wool hook rug kit :o) I have visions of every flat surface in my home having some sort of rug on top of them - much to my husband's dismay...........but why settle? Forget what you Mama told you, more really *is* better ;)

Thank you... for your visits and the comments that you leave me, they make me smile! Now back to the Bee Man....

Have a Blessed Easter....and Until Next time, love and best wishes, as you count your blessings and your stitches, from our house to yours! XXxxxx

All the things in this world
are gifts and signs of God's
love to us. The whole world
is a love letter from God.

  7. I didn´t heard of them until I saw it on your blog. Is it an American tradition? I think it will do a nice rug to. Can you tell us something about it? Have an Happy Easter, with your lovely family. MJ

  41. Vonna, I love it!! You are too flippin' talented. :) LOL at your jumping in & buying more... yes, DHs need to know that more really IS better! My DH always rolls his eyes at how much I jump whole hog into things but he does admire the end result. I think penny rugs add so much interest and texture to the house, especially when there are samplers nearby!

    Have a blessed Holy Week!
