A found treasure.

I was supposed to be at quilt retreat this weekend but was needed at home, as my mom is not doing well. I did get a little sewing in, and wanted to share with you a very wonderful project. I was helping my mom clean up her sewing room and came across this pretty Penny Rug she had made years ago, and which unfortunately a little mouse had discovered too. Momma said she could not bring herself to throw it away, and had been keeping it for years now wanting to mend it. I just fell in love with it and I believe its the only Penny Rug my mom had ever made. So I asked her if I could mend it for her. and that is what I worked on this weekend.

Here is the mended Penny Rug - and better still - she gave it to ME!

I also completed my Noah's Ark Wall hanging. This was a fun project to do .

I hope you all had a great weekend, and to my quilting friends at White Oak - you were in my thoughts and I know you had a great time. I can't wait to see the projects you worked on!

Happy Quilting,

Teresa

Beautiful work, T.

We did miss you at retreat this weekend. I took the camera but didn't even take it out of my bag! Just wasn't in the mood to take pictures.
