A Wonderful Material Treat

I won the most wonderful prize in blogland!
For those who know me I am "allergic" to sewing, thread, material, needles, etc.  My mom had me take all the 4-H classes in sewing but I was a disaster.  It is amazing she and I lived through it. 
 I am always amazed at what people can do with material.
I entered Cottonwood Lane Primitives giveway not to long ago and longingly looked at the beautiful penny rug (OK, I was coveting it) and thinking how great it would look in my house.
Roberta had packaged the treasure so nicely with a cute little card.
Aren't you all amazed I had the self restraint to get the camera and take a photo!
I am proud of my self for that!

In to the package I tore.  Probably not as gently as I should have but look at this beautiful rug!
The photo just does not do it justice!! 
My husband who collects Native American Rugs really attached himself to it.  We are going to hang it on our wall in the entrance way for everyone to see!!
Roberta, your work is marvelous.  It is created so well and you can see love in every stitch!
Thank you so much!!
Take a look at her blog to see what she is stitching up right now!
