This is a penny rug I made recently. It is for an upcoming workshop that Polly and I will be doing in Nantucket in July. The classes will be held at the 1800 House on the island of Nantucket and the classes are given by the Nantucket Historical Organization. The class info will be posted soon on their website. This will be an exclusive kit for the Nantucket workshop. It will be a lovely trip for us in July and we are looking forward to it. Polly will be teaching a rug hooking class, of course. It is especially nice to think of Nantucket with summer sea breezes when we are in single digits and getting more snow today. Good thing I love snow. If it's going to be winter, then you might as well have snow.
If you like to stitch penny rugs, just in time for Valentine's Day are our Heart Penny rug kits
order one before February 14th and we will include a free "Welcome Home" Banner kit as seen in the posting below. You can stay inside and stitch - I know I will.
This is Roscoe, unwinding after a morning nap. His new favorite perch is my 4 foot tall stack of quilts ready to be packed into suitcases. Right now they are stacked and folded in an antique baby crib. These are handpicked from the famous "Princess and the Pea" stack of quilts on the guest room bed. Roscoe likes them here. Too bad for him it is only temporary. They are getting ready for a show and tell at a Michigan Quilt Guild. His sweet face almost makes me want to keep the stack of quilts there for his comfort. Almost.
