    This was my first Wool Penny Rug. Now I'm hooked! The horse belongs to my friend. When I took his picture, he just stood there, looking at me, with one foot in the air. But he had this naughty look on his face... His pattern now lives in the book "Horsing Around".

    It's stunning!! What do people do with penny rugs?? I have a pattern in a magazine I wanted to do, but didn't know what to do with them. Are they just like a table topper?? It isn't very big, so I didn't think it belonged on the floor!

    I didn't even have to look at who did this. I knew instantly. Your work is always so beautiful and unique. Thanks for sharing.

    What is the difference between wool and felt? Could you use felt? I bought a yard of about 12 colors when it was 50% off, and used some in Xmas wall hangings and a couple of applique quilts I did, but for these penny rugs, can it also be used?

    I hung this one on the wall over a window. They don't usually go on the floor, despite the name.
