I haven't stitched anything in over a week, not because I'm being lazy and  not stitching or don't want to though. I actually painted the living room and redecorated it......Oooooh just a minute I have made something, I will run and take a pic and show you............

Here it is, a penny rug. Well its bigger than most penny rugs. Its about 25x26 inches. I found one on ebay and fell in love with it, put in a bid that I was sure would guarantee it would be mine and was outbid immediatly so I decided to make my own. It only took about 3 hours start to finish and would have gone faster but I was using fusible web to hold the pieces in place before I did the blanket stitch around them and apparently I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to that stuff. I did finally get the hang of it though.  Kind of.

Its not completely finished because I am making triple pennies to put on each of the little green "tabs" around it.  I figured I will  make all of them first then put them on. So he is on my endtable though and very cute.

Another reason I'm not stitching is I broke the plug in part on my ott lamp and I have one ordered.  I was afraid I would have to buy a whole new lamp but contacted the company that makes them and I was able to order the piece even though my lamp is about 9  years old. I was thrilled and hopefully it will be here Monday or Tuesday.

So heres a new picture of my pug Quincy...........he's wearing Sophies snake on his head, don't ask.........This is the first picture of Quincys face, well the side of his face,  since he was a baby, hes camera shy or maybe just a butthead when it comes to letting his picture be taken. 

No my living room is not that color yellow.  The background colors are way off in this picture.  Notice the deformed couch pillow in the background? Thats because Sophie in her 22 pounds of glory perches up there all the time, sigh, dogs gotta love em....

Hopefully I will be stitching by Monday or Tuesday, as soon as the lamp part comes. I don't know how I stitched without that lamp before.

Thanks for stopping by...........
