Better Pictures

I apologize for the awful pictures I had downloaded yesterday.  Here are some better pictures that will show the color of the backing of the mat so much better.

IF you have found me, I must apologize as the "gremlins" are at work again.  I can not post or add pictures the way I always have.  Will work on the problem.  I have been doing some wool dying and would love to show you the results.  But will have to fix this posting problem first.

My best to all my blog friends.  Have a blessed day,
FINISHED!!   I really like how the extra detail of the french knots
made the mat looked  "complete".  I know the color picture
does not show the true color of the background.  It was a hand dyed
piece I had bought.  It is a rustic reddish/burnt "orangey" color!

 OK this is in the middle of adding the Black French Knots!


How I reworked a penny rug mat!

I am so excited about a "rework" on one of my penny rug mats.  I have it for sale in my ETSY shop, but I  always felt it needed something else.  Then "LIGHTBULB MOMENT"  I decided to add some black!!!  With French Knots in the center of each small penny.   I love it....Added 3 french knots and anchored them in without going to the backside of the mat.  

IF anyone is interest in purchasing, just e-mail me!!

I will do the before, during and after pictures!

OK something is very wrong here.  I can not access my pictures to post!! Will keep trying!!
