First is a mirror and an early checkerboard, that is still fashioning it's advertising..a little worn and a spot that must have been attempted to clean...but I love it!
ANd then two pocket watches...both are far from repair...but I think they will look sweet on a chain..perhaps around an old teddy bear?? Then the sweet little melting pot..we stopped at Sandra Nolan's shop in Jerusalem OH on the way home...and I made a few purchases from her....Her shop is wonderful!!
I've been working on a penny rug for my table. I thought I would make a big one...but it seems like I have been sewing pennies forever! I have 65 made...and 61 more to go! They are fun, but I really would like to get this project done before 2017! I purchased a Sizzix BigSHot...which cuts out the most perfect wool circles...and that has cut down on time tremendously! I just love it!
The background is a gold/green wool. I've been trying to use the wool that was in my scrap basket...the pieces that aren't really good for hooking (too small) but good for circles).
Then.last....this is a sweet little piece that my daughter made for me when she was only 7....the first punch needle I had ever seen....she worked on it so hard with her aunt and then gave it to me as a gift...so sweet!
Well...back to doing chores for the day...it's laundry day and grocery shopping day...then back to pennies! Have a great day!!
