Penny Mats

July 29, 2014
I purchased a penny mat kit from 
The kit includes all the materials you need to make two primitive candle mats.
Cee also provides 5  youtube videos on how to assemble the mats.
I find stitching using the blanket stitch so relaxing!

I have finished one, just needs pressing and almost finished stitching the other.

Wishing you all a great evening!

She loves napping on my hooked rugs.

It's such a beautiful day here in Chester County Pa.

Hooked Rug

July 13, 2014

Today is my birthday so I'm taking it easy doing things that I like to do!!
 I've been spending some time up in my workroom finishing up this rug. 
Very seldom do I get to hook during the day!!
This pattern is an antique adaptation hand-drawn and shared 
by the talented Rebecca Lindquist at thesimplequiet.wordpress.com
My version measure 47" x 18".
Thank you so very much Rebecca for sharing this pattern!!!

I thank you all for taking the time to stop by for a visit!
