Penny rug...



I've finally started the rug I was talking about making a million years ago. It's based on this old penny rug that my parents have at their house (directly above). I'm using wool felt and decided to tone down the palette a bit. My stitches look giant compared to the tiny, perfect stitches on their rug. However, I'm sure that the abuse it'll receive from Kicky and EZ E will hide my imperfect stitches. I'll keep you posted.
