Adding A Smidge Of Yellow...

'Licorice Penny Rug' by Rose Clay at

There were a few projects that I wanted to
complete before the Porchwalk, 
but did not quite make it.

The Licorice Penny Rug was one 
of those projects...
so I took another look at it 
and decided it needed just a tad of color.
I used a quarter to cut my wool pennies.

A pale yellow wool will do.

Blanket stitched the single pennies in place.

I decided on a simple Sheaf stitch 
in the center of each golden wool penny.

Just have to add the backing.

Necessary Endings by Dr. Henry Cloud

I'm coming to the end of this 
very good book.
Everyone has necessary endings,
as they go through the seasons of life.
How well we navigate those endings
determines how well we do,
moving forward.
A great read.

Enjoy your day my Friends...


  1. Rose, I was just sitting here missing my mom so much (she died in April) when I scrolled through your blog and saw your comment on the book Necessary Endings. Wow. It made me catch my breath. Maybe I need to read this book. Thank you. Linda

  2. I love the yellow addition to your licorice project!

  3. The pop of yellow does change the look of the licorice mat. Please show when completed. On another note Rose, your package is going out in the mail tomorrow. I apologize for not getting it out to you sooner. Janice

  4. That nice soft yellow sure does add some spice to this rug! Beautiful!
    I'm going to order up this book right away....sounds like something i need to know! :-)

  5. I would have never thought to put yellow in that piece but it works wonderfully

  6. Oh the yellow is perfect, and that sweet stitch in the center..I thought you had tied it, then put my glasses on and saw that sweet stitch..

  7. I love the colors of your wool...please show it when you are finished with it...I need some inspiration!!!
