Valentines Penny Rug

Im starting early. I waited way to long at Christmas to start selling my Christmas crafts & goodies-so long in fact that somehow the holiday blew by & I was definiatly not ready! I had no idea people were starting to Christmas shop in September, so hopefully next year I will be ready. It was still a wonderful holiday season with lots of fun, family,and relaxing.(Maybe to much relaxing)
Yesterday I thought I would put my new embroidery machine to the test & machine embroidered these redwork napkins. There are so many adorable desing, I don't know how to choose!

Valentines is sneakly approaching. I made this heart penny rug with wool felt in varying shades of pinks & red. It was so fun to make so I thought I would brose some on Flikr- but there wasnt any!!! So I decided to start a little penny rug group. Join in if your interested, and we can share patterns and ideas! Its http://www.flickr.com/groups/pennyrugs/
This one I made came from a free pattern over at Fons & Porter. Look under online designs for pattern!

Hi, found you through SweetRepeats. My eyes lit up when I saw your heart penny rug. I always make a bee line to anything heart shaped when out thrifting. The napkins are adorable too. :)

Oh man, the mice, I am dying from the sweetness of them.

I am already knee deep in the Valentine crafting myself, and am VERY stuck on one bothersome wreath. LOL

Oh my goodness, those are adorable! I was thinking that MS Living and other magazines should pubish thier holiday issues somewhere around late July. I'd buy them and maybe Christmas crafts would help me feel cooler.

LOVE the heart penny rug! I'm not normally a big fan of the pink/brown combo but the hearts make me think of cookies. Pink and brown can most definitely co-exist in the world of cookies!

I'm so into redwork and embroidery lately. The napkins are great! I adore the wee mice!

P.S. I joined the flickr group :-)
