Penny rug runner

Hi guys,

Well it has been a few months since I posted that huge pile of wool clothing that I got from Salvation Army. What a pain to wash, dry and rip it apart, but it is nice to have all that wool at my fingertips.

So I made the sheep mat that hangs on the little rocking chair (it was in an earlier post). I made a candle mat for my trashy swap partner (Sew Many Girls blog). Now I took on a larger job. I saw a runner similar to this one on Taylor's Farmhouse blog. I really liked it, so I tried to make something like it, but not an exact copy. I used colors that can be changed from room to room. It is a pretty good size and that bottom layer of brown wool is very thick. It was a large coat. I am pleased with the end result. Let me know what you think. Thanks and have a good day, Kim
