This year has been so full of calamity and fear that it has spread much anxiety and made it hard to focus for all of us. I have felt very unsettled but have increasingly turned to crafting to find joy and peace. I get much pleasure out of designing a new penny rug pattern. It was such fun to place and stitch all the details on the Haunted Pedal Car design. It has so many Halloween elements that it is hard to see them at first. It was fun to study the finished penny rug with my granddaughter and find all the hidden treasures. The Scrolled Pumpkin design just fell into my head while cleaning house. It was a pleasure to work with the different metallic flosses that add the elegance to this design. It will be most beautiful on the Thanksgiving table. I would like to remind all of the saying “Stay calm and stitch on.” Many blessings to all and I hope you stay safe and healthy.
