Happy Thursday my friends!
In my last post I took a picture of my neighbors home.
Unfortunately my dear sweet neighbor Shirley
passed away at 84 after my last post.
Please say a little prayer for the love of her life Paul.
They were married for 63 years and I could tell he is lost
without her now.
She is in heaven now watching over him.
This brings me to the other part of my post.
I drew out three circles for patterns.
1 inch, 2 inch and 3 inch in size.
Started with some blues, browns, cream and tan wools.
Some plain and some over dyed.
Two pennies made.
116 more to go.
Whew, this is going to take me awhile.
I saw this penny rug hanging on the wall
in an antique store.
The price was $425.00.
I drew out the entire pattern on a piece of paper
an decided to make one myself,
changing the colors up a bit.
(Would have loved the original..but cannot afford it)
The final project will hang on the wall in the new bedroom.
It will have 6 sides,
with each side being 27 inches.
I am going to try and add all of the wonderful
colors everyone suggested for our wall color.
Hopefully it will work out.
Will keep you posted on my progress.
Pennies From Heaven Blessings To All!
