Black & White Blog Hop

Black & White Blog Hop

A big thanks to Carla for bringing us this blog hop! Here's the list of today's participants:


I love the theme of this hop. It's simple and yet presented so many possibilities. For my project, I designed a wool felt penny rug. For those of you who don't know what a penny rug is, here's a link that gives a good explanation/history.

My penny rug is called "Waiting for Spring." It features a sheep standing on a snowy hill, and the perimeter is surrounded with snowflake "pennies." It's a simple design, sewn up in black and off-white.

The sheep has a few swirls on its fleece and a closed eye with eyelashes added with embroidery. The most time-consuming part of this project is cutting out all those snowflakes!

If you'd like to make it yourself, the pattern is now available in my Etsy shop.


I love to read your comments, and I'll reply to all comments via email, unless you're a No Reply Blogger.

And be sure to visit everyone participating in this great hop!

My patterns will continue to be available in my shop on
