Wooly Table Runner...

Wool Penny Rug by Rose Clay at ThreeSheepStudio.com

This was the week to finish the Penny Runner.
I really wanted it on my table for the holidays.

I decided to give it some black accents...
and a black background.

I'm very fond of this black wool -
the finest black wool I have found.
It's from Dorr Mill.  (Black Dorr Wool
I've been using their black wool
 for many years and love 
the weight and softness.

I finished the black background with a self binding.

Next on the list was coasters.
I love the look of wooly coasters on the D.R. table.
One side is striped the other is solid black.

I read this one morning and I LOVE it...

that you are carrying, you were 
only supposed to climb.
