PEACE PRAYER


I've been working on a penny rug lately and put the last penny on today. I stilll need to finish the piece with a back. It's my first penny rug, and I enjoyed going in circles. The middle circles are the size of a penny, and the outer circles are just over an inch in diameter.
Peace to all.

What a fun looking project, Cat, and a nice thought, too!

I've not been crazy about other 'penny' projects, but I really like this one. Is the background a piece of wool or felt? I'm also not very knowledgeable about these either. With the penny size I am guessing it is a wall hanging about 7 x 9".
How do you hang it?

That is stunning Cat - I absolutely love it! All those shades of lilac come together in the most vibrant way with the black outlines.

It must have been very peaceful, stitching through that lovely wool with such a beautiful thought in your mind as you worked.
Just inspiring as can be....

WOW! This looks like one of those opical illusion things with all the circles and bright outer threads. It's very cool!

I never heard of a penny rug... what size is it, or is it small and just called a penny rug... I've got a lot to learn....I did go to my simply crazy class, and finished that project, but I haven't tried anything new.... I have got to get control, and stick with one thing for a while....I am a dabbler, I seem to dabble in everything, but then never know what to do with it....LOL..... I love your Believe crazy quilt piece below....the colors are very peaceful.....Hope Annies enjoying the summer....and you too.... judy

Shopgirl said...
