Simply Primitives Sneak Peak

We finally got a break in the heat wave here in Kansas! I couldn't wait to open the windows again and get some fresh air in the house. The drought continues, though, and it's taken a toll on lawns, trees and bushes. I'm sure we'll have to replace several bushes this fall. While we enjoy these nice, cooler summer days, though, I'm thinking ahead to fall and have been working on a couple of seasonal things for Simply Primitives. Here's a sneak peak of a penny rug I'll be offering. 
I'm also working on a witch-cat make-do thingy and thinking it's about time for another giveaway, so stay tuned.

Good Morning Roberta, So glad you are getting a break with the hot temps. We are supose to get a break on Monday. I am so ready for fall and cooler temps. That penny rug is looking great. I want so badly to learn to do that. So many beautiful designs out there. Have fun creating

Wow Roberta your penny is so pretty.
I'm not sure if I could do one like that since I've just started. I'm having my first giveaway, stop by and check it out.

Yes I'm sorry you guys are in the middle of the heat wave. It has cooled here and is not so humid now.
