It was a cold day today but we had a wonderful mini workshop on penny rugs thanks to Carol Weatherman and Dee Bartrug!
They make the most wonderful Early Style Penny rugs....they had kits cut ready to stitch and we had the nicest time blanket stitching pennies together and putting them on to a wool background!
These are just a few of the penny rugs they have made! You can visit there shop "The Sampling" to see lots of wonderful hand~dids and hooked rug patterns.
This is the penny rug I completed in the class.
Now to announce the winner of the Snowman pillow giveaway with a few little extras.....
The winner of the Snowman pillow giveaway is Jessica of Country Whispers!
Well as the afternoon came to an end the temperatures have dropped and rain has begun to fall and has turned to freezing rain! So I'm going to cut more pennies and get to stitching.
