Pennies from Heaven ~ Volume 5 Part 1

Well yesterday's blog post was not to be.
My photos and blogger were not cooperating. 
But today is a brand new day and things look like they are working...
Mom had so many finishes, that I will be splitting it into two posts of loveliness :)

The top photo is a Maggie Bonanomi design from one of the Needl Love Thread books.

This wonderful patriotic penny rug is by Primitive Gatherings and the kit was a Mother's Day gift.
Great job Mom! I love how she used binding around the edge. She finished it on Flag Day and noted it on a tag on the back.

And it looks lovely on her entry way table!

This is another Maggie Bonanomi Needl Love Threads book design. 
We both did it in different color ways and it looks so totally different!
You can see my version here.

This sweet mat is A Piece of Work design.

Here is one of my favorites this visit!
Made from an absolutely gorgeous kit by Cee Rafuse.

It's the first time Mom did the feather stitch and of course it is perfect! Would we expect anything less ;)
The colors are so subtle and aged - be still my heart!

This stunner is Botanical Wool Runner by Maggie Bonanomi.
You can find the pattern here.
Mom did it in this wonderful tonal mode of ivory and green that really shows off the intricate design.

You just have to see it close up!

*sigh* Sew beautiful!

Lucky us! It lives in my parents guest room, so my sister and I got to sleep with it at the foot of our bed.

And one final bright happy piece before I close tonight...
An abbreviated version of Garden Row by Threads the Bind.

I hope you enjoy Mom's work as much as I enjoy sharing it!
What a joy to have a crafting family :)
