The Penny Rug is FINISHED ...

I can't believe I've finally finished it! It's done, done, done ... and what a project it was. A whopper! It measures 47" x 21-1/2"!!!! One inch short of four feet long! Wowsa!! I tried and tried to get a picture of it but there wasn't anywhere in my tiny house to lay it out and take a good picture of it. I took it to work today and had one of our photographers photograph it in the studio. We pinned it to a black backdrop so that's why you see the corners pulled up a bit and the little humpy pull in the top center. He did great job capturing the true colors of it. MUCH better than I could have done (special thanks to Bob B.) ... and a heartfelt THANK YOU to my friend, Cee ... your pattern was wonderful to work with ... stop by and visit Cee at her website (get those drool rags ready, you're soooooooooooo gonna love this) http://earlystylepennyrugs.com/
I'll be listing the penny rug on my website soon ... I'm working on several new prim goodies at once (which could be disaster - lol) ... stay tuned ...
