Tah Dah!!!!

A quick post just to show that lots and lots of felt circles each blanket stitched together finally equals:

One very bright Penny Rug ready for hanging.

I've really enjoyed sewing this wall hanging all the bright colours making me smile with each set of happy cheerful colours different from the rest. Part of me is sad now it's finished, I just hope the people it's for like it.

Tomorrow is Monday and I am having a card making day. I've been asked by some of the people I work with to make a 60th birthday card for one of our team and I've been given a list of other cards to make for other friends too. So I'm hoping to have a mammoth card making day tomorrow and then be able to move on to the things I've been planning for the last month or so.

It's our 10th wedding anniversary next weekend, and looking back we have had some great times and seen some great places together. We have a lot of bare walls in our house and for a long time now I've wanted to fill those walls with lots of bright happy pictures and collages to remind us of those things. I've got a few ideas and sketched out some ideas but that's as far as it's got but hopefully over this year a few things will materialize and end up on our walls. Watch this space.
I hope you all have had a great weekend.
take care

Hey Janette, that looks fabulous! I love all the colours, you have inspired me to be braver :)

That pic of you and your family is so nice, we don't have any of the four of us at all. Must get some done!
