As always I have a few works in progress but this week I have been doing some hand stitching. I finally started the the Penny Rug SAL over at The House on the Side of the Hill.
I was not able to find a larger piece of wool blend felt for the the base of the penny rug in the color I wanted so I bought white and dyed it.
I expected the fabric to shrink so I bought extra but I was still a little short when I squared it up. But I think I will be able to get everything on by just spacing a little less along the long sides. Here is part of month one I believe Melody just posted month five a week ago, so I have some catching up to do.
I am trying to decide whether to give the door a french knot door handle or find a small button. What do you think?
I am a mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls. I love to sew, paint, garden and enjoy many different crafts. Ladybug is actually my Scottie's name and she gives my hubs and I many hours of pleasure. I dream up many ideas of which a few I manage to make happen. My husband is very talented and has a few hobbies of his own so he puts up with my many hobbies and the mess they leave behind. I cannot say this blog is about anything in particular except our love of home, family and friends with a few interesting things sprinkled in here and there.
