New progress during the storm

Tropical Storm Irene seems to have chilled out for a bit so I thought this was a good time to post....before the power thinks about going out. I have had this wool kit for a few years and finally made it. I love it. So many little pieces.
My boy, Chester, is the tuxedo cat in the picture. My mom has recently gotten interested in wool and we got together one Saturday and worked on our respective projects. I have also been moving right along on Shores of Hawk Run Hollow.

Penny Rug

I went to a fantastic shop in Gilmanton, NH called Badger Brook Farm. She has the most beautiful dyed wools plus patterns, flannels, punch needle, threads, yarn and gorgeous finished pieces on the walls. No website but worth the trip if you are in NH. She has a lot of kits and this was a small penny rug kit. The pieces are already cut into circles and have a fusible web already on one side so you can iron the little pieces to the big pieces and they don't move when you are doing the blanket stitch. I put it under a candle. It was fun to make.
