I love to create my projects from beautiful things I see while traveling. My creativity can be sparked from things I see in a museum, or artifacts I have encountered while touring homes and estates or even architecture on a building. My most recent Penny Rug is called Rose Garden. I have been working on this project for about 3 years and was inspired while touring the Cottages in Newport Rhode Island. I loved Rose Cottage. It wasn’t the most ostentatious or beautiful but I loved the colors and it seemed comfortable and lived in. The gardens where filled with roses and smelled wonderful as the day heated. I hope this pattern will help your home feel warm, comfortable and lived in.
