Penny Rug Done

I've never made a penny rug before, but I love to blanket stitch so I thought I'd like this. I have 84 three layer pennies in this runner. It's all from the wool that I bought several weeks ago at the TS. The colors are camel, dark red, brown tweed, gray and black. I must tell you that I am glad to have it done. There's another project that I want to start and I told myself not until I had this done! What will power(just agree with me - no laughing!).

We have a late spring break this year. Only one more week of school and we'll be off for 5 days. Yeah! Can't wait.
Have a great weekend. ~Ann

  3. Thats a lot of stitching circles! It looks great - you have better will power than me! Good for you!

  4. I love your penny rug. Love all the colors. I've made several but I want to make one with all the different colors too. Great job and congrats for sticking with it till you got it done before starting something else. You've got more will power than me.(lol)
    Have a great day.
