Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Bunny Penny Rugs

I've been wanting to learn how to applique wool for a long time. I'm such a visual learner and I do so much better if I can watch someone rather than read a pattern. So when Joy posted about teaching a class I jumped at the chance. There were six of us taking the class, and we had so much fun. Joy has a beautiful home and many many talents. She was a wonderful, patient teacher.


She had lovely refreshments and a good time was had by all. Joy had a blog, Joy's Thoughts and Things for a year, but has decided to go private. So sad, she always had the best creative posts. We'll miss you Joy!

I had my camera in my purse but I didn't take one single picture. Bad blogger, Mimi Sue.
Now I have so many ideas bouncing around in my head. I can't wait for my next project. As soon as we're finished with this...

I have always had a soft spot in my heart for penny rugs. But never got around to making one. I'm looking forward to seeing these!
