I think spring is here! 
The sun is out, the birds are chirping,
the grass is green, the flowers are starting to bloom!
This weekend has been beautiful!

I love how this Penny Rug turned out!

This Penny Rug is about 9 inches across at the widest points. This penny rug is made out of black treated wool. There is a star and pennies in the middle.

More New...

In a post I made earlier I talked about trying something new.
I guess I've been on a new kick so I thought I would try using brown wool.
 This first penny rug is New, New.
New shape...I love it! New color...brown. New thread color...tan.
I love how soft and muted looking this is.
 I tried brown thread in this one...I love this too!
Round and tan.
Today our weather has been really odd...snow in the morning along with rain(again) we saw a little sun and blue sky all with temps in the 30's.  Not your thought of spring?  Mine either. So that's why I have been trying new helps keep my mind off of the cold rainy weather. 
I also been stitching a lot in my car.  What?  My son is on the golf team and lacrosse team so I've been driving him all over and doing a lot of waiting.  What better way to pass the time then to stitch.
I listed these brown penny rugs on ebay if you're intrested.
Enjoy your weekend,

Trying Something New...kind of.....

The weather here is still winter like here so I've been stitching and stitching.
I always stitch my penny rugs with black but I thought I would try something me.

I used beige thread to make these penny rugs.

Wow it sure makes a difference.

 I like the look of both.
 This black with beige is a winner!
 I just thought I would show some of my star penny rugs.

I just love mixing different colors together.
I also joined facebook as Harvest Moon by the Lake.
I thought it would be fun to post what I've been working on.
Next I think I'll try twitter.
Enjoy your day,
