Kitty Update & Penny Rugs

Thank you all for the sweet comments and advice concerning Kitty (who has no name right now).  He's had a bath and has no more fleas ~ totally fluffy & cute.  He's also gotten into a lot of things....

Here's Buddy hanging out at the bathroom door ~ "I'd like whatever is behind Door #3, Monty" ~

Slow is the name of the game...

Since I haven't had a chance this week to cross stitch, I thought I'd share a penny rug I made about two years ago.  I had seen a similar one on Bluejean Primitives website and just fell in love with it.  My late FIL had been in the Army and served in Germany during the Korean War and I used his old army blanket as the base.  All the pennies used came from reclaimed wool from the thrift stores.  It's one of my absolute favorites and holds special meaning because I used Poppy's blanket.

The next one is my very first penny rug I made ~ I used a pattern by Colleen at Penny Rugs & More.  It's called Hit & Miss and you can find it at her Etsy shop here Ragamuffin2006.  Such an easy pattern and perfect for your first!

Hope y'all have a wonderful day tomorrow!


  1. Ooops - I keep forgetting to tell you. I love the paisley background on the blog. Gorgeous colors and pattern. I 'd love to have some fabric like that!

  2. Buddy looks hungry! Oh no! Glad the little kitty is flea free and doing well.

    Your penny rug is fantastic and I love that you used the old army blanket for the base. What a great idea!

  3. Love the penny rugs. Cute kitty, hope you figure out how to keep the dogs from thinking he's a squirrel :-).

  4. What a sweet set of pictures of your newest addition :)
    Love your Penny Rugs! Your hooked for sure now ;)

  5. Lauralee, Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your new little kitty is so cute! Very pretty coloring. I love your penney rugs. I'm about to get into making them. Going to start by making a few penny rug coin purses and see how they do.


  6. Love the penny rug! And I have a cat that loves to unroll the tp - what is it about the bathroom that fascinates pets so much??? LOL

  7. Looks like the kitty is having a great time tearing things apart, but am glad that the fleas are gone. Love the penny rug especially the one you used the army blanket as the base for. I am definitely going to have to try to make one someday.

  8. Just discovered your blog so I thought I would say "hi!" Love the penny rugs--you do beautiful work :)
