My favorite old stitcheries are those whose maker departed from the normal accepted practice. That's why I'm loving recreating these folky penny rugs with mixed wool and cotton. The foundation cloth and cotton pennies are made from repro fabrics in my stash.
Simple stitching on a chilly gray October day. Things are gearing up here at the Winter Cottage as I prepare for the Brandywine Rug Hooker Guild Hook-In this October 22 in Kimberton, PA. Hope I see you there!
