I AM SOOO PLEASED WITH MY NEW PENNY RUG
I am soooo pleased with my new penny rug which I just finished stitching up! And I have to say again that I LOVE Brenda Gervais' patterns at Country Stitches. Even though this is an older pattern, as soon as I saw it on the website, I was in love! (It was a little Christmas treat for myself :-) -Do you ever give yourself little treats like that? P-)
And I'm not disappointed - what do you think of it?
Isn't the Santa gorgeous? I love the reindeers and little snowflakes!
It's about 34" in length and by just stitching a little every now and then when I got the chance it didn't seem to hard to blanket stitch 31 'tongues'.
Isn't this a great detail on the 3 tongues?!!
I also got a couple of other x stitch patterns finished but with sick girls at home this week I haven't yet fixed up some other Christmas arrangements done. Thankfully they are on the mend and we hope it all goes and we can enjoy Christmas.
This is such a pretty freebie pattern from Threadwork Primitives byNan and looks just right in the greens.
We're watching snow falling here tonight and it might keep us indoors tomorrow. I hope it doesn't stay too long because we have some family get togethers planned for the weekend.
Well, I hope everyone is warm and cozy and not stressing out over all the season's rush!
Enjoy it and remember to thank God for His unspeakable gift!
Thanks so much for your visit - I love the company!
