Penny For Your Thoughts

my sweet blogging buddies!
I am so looking forward to this weekend.
I had a few bad days this week.
Yesterday and Wednesday.
Everything and I mean everything went wrong at work on Wed.
I love my job..but so glad that day is over with....just lots of problems.
Plus idiot drivers. 
Some guy driving behind me it seemed did not want to be behind me,
even though I was going 5 miles over the speed limit.
He had to pass me up...
and as soon as he passed me up, 
he put on his brakes in front of me and made a right hand turn 
onto a street..really??? 
Guess he could not wait 3 more seconds and turn in back of me.
Then I had a gal pull out in front of me and I had to brake hard.
Guess my red car is not visible enough. LOL

Then yesterday I had a client call on the island near us.
We have to pay a fee to get on the ferry. 
After my call, I realized I had left my purse back at the clients...
and of course I was on the ferry going back when I remembered.
Had to turn around and get back on again.
The only consolation was it was a gorgeous day and the water was so blue!

Here's hoping today and the weekend will be better.

I started working on my penny rug again.
Remember I have to make 116 pennies....
What was I thinking? LOL

All wool pennies.

47 of these woolie pennies sewn on my brown wool.
Can you see the start of the design?
For those new to my blog,
I saw an antique penny rug for sale with a $425 price tag.
Evn though I am an antique dealer...I could not see myself purchasing
the real thing as it was not in very good shape...
so I drew out the pattern..and am making one myself.
Now only 69 more to go.
What was I thinking?
What are you thinking?
Penny for your thoughts.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Penny Blessings To All!
