Nice gingerbread penny rug. I've been making gingerbread man cinnamon ornaments. I can relate. Fun Christmas traditions.

Thanks so much Cheri, just love your sweet Gingerbread Men penny rug (looks perfect set out on your chair for display too)! And love your cute little granddaughter; such a big helper, looks like she loves making cookies with grandma!! I shared this Blog Hop on my FB page...hope to send more followers your way. You might remember me from back when you had your quilt shop in Vista, CA area?? I'm Wool-N-Wares (Diane) and the one who bought your old, big YELLOW CUPBOARD that was a display for many of your fabrics back then. We live on the east coast now! I also took your classes at the old Prairie Sampler in Fullerton! You sound like your {new life} has been heavenly...many blessings, well deserved & the merriest of holidays to you & yours!

Wow! Beautiful!

Debbie Whiting said...

Soooo cute. Thank you.
Merry Christmas!

I cannot figure out if you meant the mat to be as small as it prints out, or if it is supposed to be a certain size? I guess it is too small for me to sew well. could you put it in a pdf format that prints out to exact size? thanks so much!

Hitimbr said...
