Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

My next "little" project . . . .

I don't know how long or how little this really is. 
I've never made a penny rug this large before.  
But here are the parts . . . . .


345 penny circles cut out with fusible web on the back ready to go.


Only 4 colors . . . . and 3 sizes . . . .


All ready to be put together in 115 triple-stack pennies.

I haven't decided on the thread color yet.  The base fabric is in the first picture under the pennies.  Many of you are doing "hexies".  These are my hexies ..... something to grab and carry with me when I have a spare minute to do a little stitching.

Blessings, Cathi

LOL...looks like my stash I just did...I got 4 of these penny rugs cut and pinned this past week and started stitching a couple days ago.
I use the Pearl #610 or #611 for these colors...works very nicely.
