Not Quite Pennies from Heaven~Volume 9

Since I just visited Mom and Dad two weeks prior, I didn't think that she would have anything to share...
I was wrong ;)

Love this sweet Maggie Bonanomi design from Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine.

such bright happy colors.

I have a finish to share as well!
"Heart 'n' Hands"
by Cee Rafuse of Early Style Penny Rugs

Why is it that at my house the second a wool mat goes down a photo bomber appears?!

Hello sweet Peanut with your shaggy winter hairdo!

Those eyes make my heart melt every single time...
I'll wait until you move to take the rest of my photos :)

I LOVE Cee's vintage hand-dyed wools!!!

And her aged string and binding just set off the look - an instant antique (lookalike)!

Mom and I also prepped our mats from the January Maggie Club project from Country Sampler.
I think that Mom has hers done already, but mine hasn't come back out of the project bag yet...
we will have to share them at our next visit.
We think it will be fun to work on a club project together each time I visit.
Guess I better go back really soon!
"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect"
~1 Peter 3:15

Blessings, Patti

Great projects Patti! I love the look you get from using stained string for the stitching - can't believe the amount of money some people use on specialty threads - ack! Thanks for the eye candy

The colors of the wool in your Cee's piece are very attractive to me. I have not used her wools before but oh so tempting.
