Idle hands.......

I took a little break from sewing this weekend to spend some time with my family. My sister snapped this photo of a friendly butterfly who landed on my hand while we sat on the dock.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Americana Penny Rug

Brick reds, denim blues and not-quite-whites are the wools I used in this one of kind eagle penny rug just listed on Ebay. I love the old look of these colors.

I dyed a lot of wool in blue shades yesterday and hung them to dry in the sun. Some of those blues are in a new little penny rug I am making to give away this month and I can't wait for you to see it! It should be finished soon and I'll have the drawing here on the blog, so please come on back!
