I haven't really finished or made anything Christmas-sy this year. We are doing very little in the way of gifts. Just a few gifts for our own kids - nothing for each other (except, of course, the wool barn in the last post which covers me for the next 10 years!) Although my children are in awe and amazement of my crafting and artistic abilities - ahem - they do not exactly share my love of all things primitive. So that takes them off the "mom-made-this-for-me" list. At least things mom WANTS to make.
I did finish this little penny rug that will hang in the bathroom after the holidays (where the pumpkin is in the post link). It measures only 11" x 15" with each larger penny measuring 2".
I made up the design myself such as it is. Not much to design. I just knew the finished size and that I wanted it on a cotton background. I finished it like a quilt with quilting and binding.
Simple enough but quite a color impact with scraps of wool.
And just in time to put another in the finish column before the end of the year.
WOOL BARN update: I primed the floors that were nothing more than 4 x 8 sheets of plywood and laid super sticky vinyl strips that look like faux hardwood floors. Today I rolled them with the 100 lb. roller that the manufacturer recommended. This is going to be the nicest storage building this county has ever seen! Too overcast for pictures today.
