PENNY RUG PILLOW

subtitled:
441 FRENCH KNOTS LATER -----
I like to have some handwork to sew on in the evenings while we watch TV.  After all, we can't miss 2 hours each week of Antiques Roadshow, many reruns of NCIS, innumerable episodes of American Pickers, plus the unending sports programs.  And how can I forget Downton Abbey; the only night I control the remote!

This has been my project since the first of the year.  
I like something repetitive as my creative mojo has died by evening; and I also like something that gives me a few week's work without switching gears.
You wouldn't think that an 18-inch pillow would take two months --- but, it did!

Time for a new project. 
It's almost the TV season for one million baseball games!!!!

It is stunning and I can easily see how it could take two months! :)

Love that pillow. You are very creative and talented. I used to do handwork, but no more as my eyes are not as good.
