Penny Rug Class and Snowman Pillow Giveaway Winner!

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.
Happy Trails.....Ginger

Thanks Ginger!
Can't wait to see it in person.
Those penny rugs are wonderful and what better thing to do on a cold and icy night than to stay indoors stitching away.
Stay warm!

What beautiful penny rugs!! I always have a soft spot for penny anything!! Congratulations to Jessica!! Woo Hoo! Fun win for her.... And, yes, it's taken a turn for the "brrr" here as well - we were up into the 30's - complete with an ice storm and dense fog - then the wind came and it all changed...we're now sitting at a balmy, neutral, 0. Brrr.... Time to head for the blankies and pull a kitty or two along. ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
