I ended up tweaking the bird on the rug. After looking at the photo, the bird seems just a little too fat on the left side. So, I took out a row of black loops, and replaced them with the oatmeal background. The crow now has a sharper beak, and seems a little more appealing. Now onto binding.

Yesterday I was out shopping, and found these Pendleton wool pants. They are a pretty tan/cream color. Can't wait to cut them apart and wash them. It should be nice wool to hook up.

I also found these wood board. The painting won't stay. I could see some type of punch needle or hooked rug attached to it. Yet another piece to put on the pile to do ~ sometime. But for a "whopping" 25 cents, I couldn't pass it up.

Didn't get any crafting done today. Instead, I took one of my teens to the doctor. He had a cold that turned into an infection. Hopefully he'll feel better now that he'll on antibiotics.

Yes, I made the penny rug in the photo. It was my first attempt at penny rugs. It was made with wool felt. I now won't use wool felt, but only use wool (woven). Much more durable (but expensive!). I've been thinking about making another one using wool..... :)

Hi Laura - Your penny rug caught my eye too! I've got a bunch of pennies stitched and have been trying to decide how to attach them to a backing - I like the way you have yours so spread out to make a larger piece. Could you send me a photo of this please? Thanks!

Very creative (as usual)! Only you could take a pair of old wool pants and do something wonderful with them. Blessings to you and yours!
