This penny rug is from a commercial pattern that I purchased. The original pattern makes large piece, but I wanted it to be small so that it would fit on my little hall table near the foyer. It's all cut out and ready to stitch. I think I'm going to do the entire thing in gold dmc size 8 pearl cotton.
I'm hoping a little stitching will take my mind off the fact that Molly wants to go to a college that will cost us $200,000 for a 4 year degree. mmmm, if all four of my children choose a college like this it would cost us $800,000 in tuition. fun. no problem. I'll just pull my checkbook out.
Kellie's class is talking about erosion in science today so she took this rock to school for a little show and tell.
She found it at the beach in the surf. Isn't it cool? I love how smooth it is.
